NEWARK - "Webster," a puppy found last month with third-degree burns on his back, is continuing to improve at a Newark rescue facilty.

Investigators believe the burns were caused by an acid or some other chemical. Rescuers say Webster is doing well and should be ready for adoption soon.

There is a $1,000 reward for anyone who can help find out who did it. Anyone with information is asked to call the Associated Humane Society.
