Fort Wayne, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Allen County is trying to solve another possible case of brutal animal abuse.

A puppy is recovering after its two front legs were broken. Officers with Animal Care and Control in Fort Wayne are trying to find out who caused this to happen.

The puppy was found outside January 9 in the 700 block of Third Street. At first they thought the one-year-old terrier mix had been hit by a car but after examining him they realized the breaks were clean through the bone.

"He's definitely felt the pain and trauma of what he's been through but it certainly hasn't changed his outlook about how he feels about human beings. That's amazing. We as people, we don't have the ability that animals like this do, and it just makes you want to help them that much more," said Belinda Lewis, Director, Animal Care & Control.

Animal Care and Control is asking anyone with any information to call them at 427-1244.

The puppy still needs another month or two to recover. After he's better Animal Care and Control will accept applications and the puppy will be in a lottery adoption to find his new home.
