FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. – A $4,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever viciously killed a family dog in Forsyth County.
Fur-Ever Friends of NC and other people are offering the reward in connection to the death of an Australian Shepherd named Scottie.
Officials said Scottie had been severely beaten, tortured, and then shot multiple times. The body of the dog was found by its owners at their Germanton home on April 5.
All-terrain vehicle tracks were discovered at the entrance property of the Stafford Mill Road home, according to officials.
The family has said they do not have any enemies. They said whoever is responsible must have entered their property because the dog would not have left the yard.
The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said they will share new information in the case with the public on Monday.
Anyone with any information can call the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Department at (336) 727-2112 or Forsyth County Animal Control.
