BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The Humane Society of Morgan County, W.Va., is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people or person who nearly killed a 7-month-old puppy after tying the dog to the back of a vehicle and dragging it over asphalt, a humane society press release said.

Morgan County Animal Control officials found the injured dog July 30 on Meridian Road and took it to Berkeley Springs Animal Hospital, the release said. The dog underwent surgery to repair numerous injuries, including road rash, a hernia, torn tendons and ligaments, and paws that were ground down to the bone, the release said.

The dog, a 25-pound black Labrador retriever mix, will take several months to recover, according to the release.

The Morgan County Sheriff's Office is investigating.

Anyone with information may call the sheriff's office at 304-258-1067, or the Humane Society of Morgan County at 304-258-5592.
