A dog that was shot and thrown from a car earlier this month is being nursed back to health at the Oakland Animal Shelter.

People at the shelter have named him Little Lance, after bicyclist Lance Armstrong, a cancer survivor.

Lance was found August 1, beaten, shot and left for dead. Another dog with him did not survive.

There is a $14,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. The Friends of the Oakland Animal Shelter organization is asking for anyone with information about the person or persons responsible for the abuse to call (510) 535-5604.
