A Dear­born an­i­mal shel­ter is of­fer­ing a $2,000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the per­son re­spon­si­ble for burn­ing a dog.

The Friends for An­i­mals of Metro Detroit said the fe­male dog was res­cued by Dear­born po­lice, who re­ceived a call the in­jured dog Fri­day on the city’s east side.

The dog ap­peared to have been burned nu­mer­ous times over a pe­riod of time. She’s a mixed breed, es­ti­mated be­tween 1-3 years old.

Elaine Greene, the shel­ter’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, said the dog, who they’ve named Phoenix, was kind de­spite be­ing abused. “In spite of the hor­rific na­ture of the in­juries, (she's) very trust­ing of peo­ple,” Greene said.

An anony­mous do­na­tion dou­bled the re­ward the shel­ter of­fered.
