A reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who stabbed a three-legged, 7-month-old puppy in San Francisco earlier this summer has increased to $15,000, Animal Care and Control officials said.

The puppy, a pit bull named Pogo, was exercising on Ocean Beach with his foster guardian from Grateful Dogs Rescue on July 22 when he disappeared.

Pogo was found stabbed to death a week later in a Dumpster in the Bayview, animal care officials said.

Anyone with information on Pogo's killing can call Animal Care and Control at (415) 554-9400.

Those who would like to contribute to the reward fund should call (415) 554-9413.
