Suspect sought for abused dog

July 14, 2006

Albany -- A horribly abused dog the Albany Humane Society hopes will bring renewed attentional to animal cruelty is out of the hospital tonight and getting national attention.

The Humane Society of the United States Humane Society is offering a 25-hundred dollar reward for information that leads to the arrest of whoever abused this cocker spaniel. She returned to the humane society today following the amputation of her mangled hind leg.

Someone dumped the dog behind the humane society Tuesday. "We're still hoping that someone would come forward with some information as to where she came from and maybe a little about her past," said Donna Strickland.

Several people have given donations toward the dog's medical bill. She'll be up for adoption after her leg has more time to recover.
