TRUMANN, Ark. (WREG) -- A reward is being offered to help find a suspect after a female dog, possibly 4 or 5 years old, was found shot at least three times, including once through her left eye.
The dog, named "Kalita" by volunteers, was found in Trumann, and died after emergency surgery Wednesday.
Candice York, a volunteer with Arkansas Pet Savers, lives in Trumann and was contacted by Trumann Animal Control to see if her rescue could help.
York said the dog, while badly injured, showed no signs of aggression.
"She had three bullets in her, and she still loved people," York said. "She did not once growl at us. She did not once growl at the animal control officer. She was a happy dog."
York took the dog to a veterinary clinic in Harrisburg, Arkansas, where emergency surgery was performed to remove her left eye, which was destroyed by a bullet. But Kalita didn't recover from the procedure.
Trumann Animal Control and Arkansas Pet Savers are offering a reward to help find who shot Kalita. York hopes the tip comes soon.
Anyone with information about who may have shot Kalita should call Trumann Police at (870) 483-6423.
