Meanwhile, the search is on for the person responsible treating Cabela so heartlessly. Fortunately, as news station WTSP reports, police have received many leads which could help them track down a suspect.
The Humane Society is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest in this case.
Lord says Cabela's sad story has ignited the interest of animal lovers, eager to provide her with a home once she's recovered:
"We've already had a bunch of offers to adopt her. She's on pain medication now, so she's really friendly because of that. But even before, she was really friendly and licking us, so she seems like a really sweet dog."
