Dayton police were dispatched to the 700 block of West Fairview Avenue on Sunday morning on reports that a dog had been on the roof for a few days, according to a police report.

No one was at the home when authorities arrived, as it is believed to be vacant, but officers did observe a dog with tan fur that looked to be neglected, and they found a host of other things in and around the home.
