INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is seeking the public’s help finding a man that dumped an abused puppy.

A news release from IMPD said the male pit bull puppy was wrapped up in a bag and dumped in the 10000 block of East Washington Street on the morning of Dec. 23.

Police said the puppy is just a few months old and has a broken leg and prolapsed rectum.

IMPD Sgt. Bill Carter, the animal control team investigator, said Monday that the dog named Blitz had its leg amputated. The dog also had rectum surgery.

Blitz was adopted Monday at Every Dog Counts Rescue, Carter said. 

The release said witnesses describe the man that dumped the puppy as a black male in his late 20s or early 30s wearing all black clothes including gloves and a beanie. He was driving a new-model car, possibly a silver Ford Fusion.
