— A pit-bull terrier that was dragged behind a Jeep was recovering Tuesday while deputies looked for the person responsible.

Logan County Chief Deputy Richard Stephens said deputies were searching for a blue Jeep near Guthrie that was seen dragging a dog behind it.

A group of construction workers first saw the Jeep dragging a dog last week and reported seeing it again Tuesday. A short time later, the workers found a dog with a large injury to its back, said Matt Goodwin, executive director of the Free to Live animal sanctuary.

They brought the dog to the shelter where it was treated by a veterinarian. Goodwin said the dog was doing OK and should recover from its injury.

“The vet said the dog’s injury is about a week old, meaning there could be another hurt dog out there,” Goodwin said.

The dog will be available for adoption after its injuries heal, Goodwin said, and people can donate to help pay for its veterinary care at freetoliveok.org.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 282-4100.
