St. Louis (KSDK) - The Humane Society is asking for help from the public after a boxer puppy was found in north St. Louis with burns.

Mike Perkins, a spokesperson for the Humane Society, says they received a phone call Saturday about the dog, but when they responded they could not find him.

On Tuesday they received another phone call about the burned dog, and found him near the intersection of Hamilton and Dr. Martin Luther King Drive.

Perkins says the dog has severe burns and is currently sedated. He says they have named the dog Sonny, and he will likely lose his left ear.

Jean Jae with the Humane Society says they are putting up a $2,500 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for burning Sonny.

Jae said the Humane Society has received donations to help cover the cost of Sonny's treatments, which is a huge help.

Anyone with information on how he may have been burned should contact the Humane Society at 314-647-8800.  You can report animal abuse by calling 314-647-4400 or by visiting
