CLINTON, Md. (AP) - Animal welfare advocates are offering a $7,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever used a scalding-hot substance to burn a dog in Prince George’s County.

The Humane Society says the 1-year-old male gray and white pit bull was found severely burned and huddled in a backyard in Clinton on Dec. 29. The dog survived and has since been named Leonidas.

The Humane Society says veterinarian reports indicate that Leonidas was intentionally burned, most likely with a scalding substance.

Leonidas is still recovering and is now being cared for at The Humane Society of Calvert County. The group says they’re committed to finding Leonidas a permanent home once he’s better.
