Reward Increases to Find Culprit Who Left Severely Abused Dog in Trash

December 14, 2018 - 12:53 pm

(KNX 1070) - The reward for a Long Beach dog found severely abused and neglected has climbed to $15,000 this week.

Chloe, a one-year-old Maltipoo-Terrier mix, was found last weekend with a fractured femur as well as multiple skull and rib fractures. 

She was found tied up in trash bag in a trash container in Long Beach, bruised up and covered in trash and human urine.

The reward money came from a bunch of places: JustFoodForDogs, which announced a $10,000 reward Tuesday, according to its press release. Fix Long Beach Pets and Animals in Long Beach and Sparky and the Gang jointly put in money too while the rest was donated by other donors and Good Samaritans.

Now, she is doing much better after being treated and stabilized with lots of love and care. Vets from Long Beach Animal Emergency (LBAE), a part of Pathway Vet Alliance, are treating the dog, according to a press release.

As of Wednesday, Diana Kliche,  president of Fix Long Beach Pets and Animals, said "Chloe's neuro is improving greatly and the CT scan showed minimal signs of damage."

She said Chloe is doing so much better.

"She is active this morning and sitting up a lot. If she doesn't have any setbacks she will be scheduled to go to surgery early next week to repair her leg," she said. "She has been very active in her kennel, sitting up."

Kliche tells KNX she and a volunteer rushed Chloe to the animal hospital.

"It turns out she had a fractured skull. They thought she had maybe some neck fractures but it turns out she was just moving her head in weird ways to try to alleviate the pressure and the massive headache that she had," Kliche said.

Anyone who is interested in helping Chloe can make a donation to Fix Long Beach through their website at, through PayPal at, or through Venmo by directing payments to @FixLongBeach.
