Police in Stamford are searching for the suspect who is responsible for drowning a dog in the South End of the city.
Police say they were called to the Czescik Marina last week and found the dog floating in the water with its front and back legs tied together with shoe laces. 
Police say the dog was a 7-year-old male pit bull that was black with a white chest. They say the dog also had a distinct white stripe down the front of its face.
People walking their dogs at the marina Monday were upset to learn about what happened.
"Somebody actually did that to something, to a little baby essentially, is totally heartbreaking," says Sarah Santerian, of Stamford. "If I ever saw it or found that person I would do the same thing to them."  
Police are offering a $3,800 reward to anyone who has information about the case. Anyone with information is asked to call Stamford Animal Control at 203-977-4434.
