Tortured dog in San Diego now needs a home

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Marissa is a 7-pound miniature pinscher that was beaten, strangled, crated and dumped in a parking lot near San Diego. The injuries cost her one hind leg, some sight and over a month in rehab.

She was found in Oceanside on Sept. 12. Dr. Gary Weitzman and the staff at the San Diego Humane Society and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals cared for her.

Now she needs a home. She'll be available Friday on a first come, first serve basis.

Crime Stoppers has posted a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who hurt Marissa. Weitzman says her injuries were horrific.

In the past year, he says 14 San Diego cruelty cases were prosecuted and thousands more investigated.
