Sheriffius rushed her dog to the veterinarian's office where she was told that her dog's ear had been cut off and super glued back on.

Sheriffius said she still has the ear in a plastic bag and has been crying for weeks at the thought on someone injuring her dog.

"Once they tried to hide it and glued the ear back on, that's not good for the dog," Det. Ed Troyer said. "There are all kinds of things that can happen, (including) infection. It is cruelty to animals."
