ODESSA - Odessa Police are looking into a possible case of animal cruelty after a homeowner found his dog severely injured and bloodied.

Ruben Hernandez says he woke up early Thursday morning and found his pitbull-terrier mix with deep cuts on his face.

The animal had lost a lot of blood and was taken to the vet.

Hernandez believe someone may have been trying to get into his home from the backyard and ended up hurting the dog in the process.

Geena Martinez spoke with the dog owner and with the Odessa Police Department, we'll have more coming up tonight on NewsWest 9 at 4, 5 and 6.
