A family found the dog August 11 near Promontory campground

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An investigation is underway to find the person responsible for shooting a poodle/terrier mix dog in the face sometime in August.

The female dog, named Bear by veterinarians who treated her wounds, was found August 11 near the Promontory campground off Hwy 224, the Oregon Human Society said in a release. A family spotted the dog and took her for emergency treatment.

Officials said Bear, who is between 3 and 5 years old, was shot in the face, which broke her jaw and fractured teeth. She has more wounds on her face and neck and a wound on her chest “is consistent with a bullet exiting her body.”

She did not have a microchip nor did she have any identification.

An investigation was launched by Oregon Humane Society and a $500 reward offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. Anyone convicted faces up to a year in jail and fines up to $6250.

Bear is still getting treatment at the Oregon Humane Society Medical Center and is not up for adoption.

The investigation continues. Anyone with information is asked to call 503.802.6707 or submit information on their website
