DALLAS -- A reward is in the works to find the person who tortured a dog in Ellis County.

Veterinarians say Bear's eyes were gouged out after he briefly escaped from his home in Garrett.

His owner can't handle a blind dog. The Ennis Veterinary Clinic has received dozens of adoption inquiries for the small Shih Tzu; it should select a new home for Bear by next week.

Police are investigating the case as animal abuse.
