Reward offered after dog was discovered in dumpster

A dog beaten to within an inch of her life was found in a dumpster in Missouri.

The dog, who has since been named Iris, was brought into Midwest Animal ResQ, which is now offering a $5,000 reward for information about how she ended up near death, Fox4KC reports.

Iris was given her name by the shelter, which says she is recovering. The shelter estimates that she is around one year old.

In a Monday Facebook post, the shelter wrote: ‘Her red blood cell count is still very low, and her infections are not under control yet. 

‘She is taking treats like a champ, and curled up in my lap for a cuddle. She will be in the hospital all week, and received another blood transfusion today.’

The shelter noted to Fox4KC that she has ‘a whole list of health concerns’.

Around $14,000 has been raised for her medical expenses.

Iris was found in a dumpster in Raytown, a suburb of Kansas City. Employees of local shops say that she is the second dog to have been found in a dumpster in the area.

A woman who is adopting Iris told Fox4KC: ‘She’s very sweet, super calm, very loving, likes to lay her head in your hand.’

But she added: ‘She’s pretty clammed up still.’
