LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There is a renewed push to find the person who shot a dog with an arrow.

The dog died after being found in Fairdale in late June on Brown Austin Road near New Cut Road.

Louisville Metro Animal Services says the Jack Russell had a 2-foot long arrow sticking out of his left hip area. LMAS says police have received a number of tips, but they haven't been able to track down the person who abused the dog.

LMAS believes the owner of the dog hasn't come forward for fear of facing charges. But they say they are more interested in identifying the owner than charging or citing the owner.

Animal Services wants to determine whether the dog lived in the area or was dumped in the neighborhood.

A $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
