MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A dog is recovering after suffering severe burn wounds.

Bluff City Veterinary Specialists said the dog, Riona, was tortured, strangled with a tie cord, doused in fuel, and set on fire.

Passers-by found Riona running for dear life down the street and brought her to the clinic.

According to Tails of Hope Dog Rescue, a $2,500 reward was offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons/persons responsible for burning Riona.

The reward increased to $20,000 Friday, July 8.
