(SAVANNAH, Mo.) Two dogs were found dead off a dirt road in Savannah, but who left them and why is still under investigation.

Mushroom hunters found the dogs Saturday and reported it to the Andrew County Sheriff's Office. Angel's Vet Express and M'Shoogy's Animal Rescue owner, Gary Silverglat, is helping with the Sheriff's investigation.

"They are two pit bull crosses," He said. "One is black, the other is a light tan. They look like they were hit in the head, with blunt force instead of shooting them. There's no bullet wounds at all."

Silverglat said both animals appear healthy, one to two-year-old dogs.

After looking at the dogs, he and other county investigators determined the dogs died a few hours before 6 p.m. Saturday.

"It had to have been someone that knew the Savannah area," Silverglat said. "It's not a well-known spot."

He said all of the evidence around the dogs points towards an intentional killing.

""They both had trauma," Silverglat said. "They both have blood in their ears and blood coming out of their nose. So we know something hit them in the head. Both of them."

Angel's Vet Clinic has offered a $1,000 reward for anyone with information that could lead to an arrest.

Anyone with information is asked to contact M'Shoogy's at 816-324-5824.

After some clouds this morning we finally started to see some sunshine across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri today. The next disturbance is heading our way from the southwest and should make it into the area late tonight tonight and tomorrow.
