A construction worked found the dog and took him to Free to Live Sanctuary where the sweet animal was rushed to the Stoneridge Animal Hospital and treated for his wounds. Matt Goodwin, at the Free to Live Sanctuary told that he had never seen such abuse:

"It was just disgusting, you don't know how someone could do this. What would motivate someone to do this? It was a good-natured dog, a sweet dog. It was just heartbreaking."

The Logan County Sheriff's Office announced they are anxious to question a person of interest after a witness described a white male driver in a custom painted dark blue or purple Jeep Cherokee in the area who had been questioning a construction worker about the dogs Tuesday afternoon. The driver is believed to be a local resident.
