If you know who abused and horribly discarded an adorable little dog in Long Beach last weekend, you could be rewarded to the tune of about $11,000.
Police are asking for help from the public as they try to unravel exactly who beat a little dog nearly to death before tying her up in a trash bag and putting her in a dumpster after urinating on her.
The Orange County Register reports that Ted Stevens, the manager of Long Beach Animal Care Services, said that someone heard the little dog whimpering from a dumpster on Walnut Avenue on Saturday afternoon. What they found in the dumpster is horrifying by any standards.

These are the photos they posted of the sweet little female dog with their Facebook post.
Vet techs at Primary Care Animal Hospital said it’s the worst abuse case they’ve seen in 30 years, according to Diana Kliche, president of Fix Long Beach Pets and Animals board of directors.
The little dog, who the rescuers named “Chloe,” has a skull fracture, a brain injury, and a fractured back leg, which they said looks like an old injury. She was covered in bruising, human urine, and rancid spaghetti, ham, and onions.
“It’s horrific,” Kliche said. “We think someone beat her, threw her in the kitchen trash, tied up the bag and then threw it in the dumpster for her to starve to death or suffocate.”
As of yesterday, veterinarians are trying to save her left back leg, which was broken in two.
Here is a news video detailing the vicious crimes against Chloe.
It’s impossible to understand how any human being can be so vicious and cruel, but we are relieved to report that Chloe’s going to probably have a happy ending. Here is an update as of Wednesday.
12/12 Update :GREAT NEWS ! Her neuro is improving greatly and the ct showed minimal signs of damage. she is active this morning and sitting up a lot. If she doesnt have any set backs she will be scheduled to go to surgery early next week to repair her leg. We are actively working with Long Beach PD and Long Beach Animal Care Services to find the person(s) who did this and the reward has increased to over $13000.
Her progress has been slow and tedious, but it seems she’s getting there.
The good news is that there will be no shortage of loving homes for Chloe and we’re confident the staff will make sure she’s placed somewhere where she’ll get the extensive medical care she’ll need.
If you have any information about who may have done this, please contact Animal Care Services at 562-570-7387. Help is needed from the public to try to find out who has done this.
