QUINCY, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Dog lovers flooded a Quincy park Saturday to honor a dog whose brutal death captured national headlines.
A crowd of more than 200 people attended a vigil for the dog named "Puppy Doe" at Quincy's Pageant Park. The Animal Rescue League, Quincy police, and Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey were in attendance.
The dog was found in Quincy last month barely alive after vets say she was beaten and tortured for likely most of her life.
Veterinarians put her to sleep after determining she could not be saved.
Quincy police said earlier this week they are making progress in the investigation in her abuse case and are determined to find whoever hurt the dog.
The Animal Rescue League has offered a $5,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest in the case.
