Abused & abandoned Boxer, Kuperus.

A rescue organization, caring for an abused dog discovered tied to a tree in Philadelphia, Pa., is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible, reported Monday's CBS Philly.

The dog, dubbed "Kuperus," by Adopt a Boxer Rescue, was found on the 2200 block of Alter Street in Southwest Philadelphia last week by a postal worker. Ironically, the abandoned and abused dog was tethered to a tree near a "no dumping" sign.
According to April Moyer, the woman who is fostering Kuperus, the postal worker who rescued the wounded dog was not even on his regular route that morning.

Fortunately for Kuperus, he was...not only did that man offer the emaciated dog water and good, but he contacted animal control officers who were able to get Kuperus to a veterinarian.

In addition to being emaciated, the neglected boxer was found to be suffering from multiple injuries, including a large wound to her head, sores across much of her body and a broken jaw.

Kuperus has a long road to recovery ahead of her, but she is now in good hands. Despite the trauma which she has endured, she had maintained a loving, affectionate demeanor.

Anyone who recognizes this dog is asked to contact:

The reward for information leading to arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for Kuperus' condition, is currently $500.
