SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is looking into who shot a woman’s dog after it broke free from its cage at a Hawk Road home.

The woman called authorities Sunday morning to report her two pit bulls — Blaze and Mush Mush — were not in their cage. Mush Mush never returned, she said, but Blaze appeared at her front door with blood on his back, said Capt. John Sifford.

A deputy followed a blood trail from the woman’s house to nearby woods but he found no bullet casings.
