Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!

Fairfax County police are asking for help in finding a person or persons who they believe stabbed a pit bull dog in the neck.

Animal control officers were called to pick up a dog about 9 a.m. Friday in the 3500 block of Rolling Hills Avenue. Cane, a 15-month-old white pit bull, was found with injuries to the left side of his neck.

A veterinarian determined the injuries were consistent with a stab wound.

The owner, who was unable to pay for the dog's medical costs, turned Cane over to the shelter. Costs will be paid in part by the Fairfax County Animal Shelter and Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
