Stamford police are searching for a person who dumped a dog in the water that was found dead with its leg tied together with a shoelace at Czescik Marina in Stamford on Wednesday.
Stamford police said they were called to the marina around 3 p.m. The caller told police he found the dog near Pier C Slip #32, and the animal was covered in mud.
The dog is male and appears to be an American Pitbull Terrier around 7 years old, black and white, with a white stripe down the front of his face. The dog appeared malnourished, police said.
Police are offering a $3,800 reward for any information on the dog's owner or who may have bound and left the dog. Anyone with information should contact Sgt. Christopher Broems at 203-589-3546.
