A pitbull puppy dragged for more than a mile along the Missouri interstate is recovering, and the Missouri Humane Society is offering a reward for any information leading to the capture of the person who caused the pitbull puppy to be dragged, abused and nearly killed.

The pitbull puppy dragged, five and a half-month-old "Trooper," is making a full recovery, but is bandaged from head to toe because of the fact that the pitbull puppy was dragged, according to the Examiner.

The pitbull puppy dragged was tied to a truck, whose driver took off without knowing that the pitbull puppy was being dragged behind him. Not until another vehicle alerted the driver was the pitbull puppy dragged rescued, and now the Humane Society is offering a $5,000 reward for information.

The pitbull puppy dragged is sporting two casts, a raw ear and is wearing a sweater to cover all of his exposed skin. However, despite the gruesome nature of the pitbull puppy dragged, the Human Society said the pitbull puppy dragged is doing well, according to the Daily Mail.

"Trooper is eating and drinking normally and he is walking on his own several times a day," the Missouri Humane Society said in a statement. "Although his right front leg was severely injured, we see some improvement that gives us hope we may be able to save it."

Despite the improvement, the pitbull puppy dragged has a long way to go before it is ready for adoption, the human society said.

"The fact that he has survived thus far is amazing,' director of Shelter Medicine Dr Mark Wright said. 'He's truly living up to his name and is a real Trooper."
