WINDSOR, Va. (AP) - Authorities in Virginia are investigating the sexual abuse of a stray dog.

The sheriff’s office in Isle of Wight County said Wednesday that the dog was harmed with a broom handle. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is offering a $5,000 reward for information.

A family found the beagle-hound mix in late April in Windsor, Virginia, and named her Huggles. They took her to a shelter. Vets removed a tumor, spayed her and performed some dental work. But the extent of the abuse wasn’t discovered for another six weeks and required surgery.

The sheriff’s office said Huggles continues to recover from her injuries.
