Puppy tossed from car may have been used as bait at dog fights

There's a reward of $20,000 for information leading to the arrest of the individual responsible for throwing a puppy out of a moving vehicle on Long Island.

The Suffolk County SPCA says it has increased its initial award of $2,000 to $5,000. Another $15,000 has been offered by the New York City-based ASPA.

Caregivers at the West Islip Emergency Veterinary Clinic have named the dog Joey.

Suffolk SPCA Chief Roy Gross says the perky-eared pup has bite marks on his neck, indicating he may have been used as bait at dog fights. He is also malnourished.

Joey was injured on Saturday afternoon near the Sagtikos Parkway in Brentwood. A driver who saw it happen called authorities.
