OKLAHOMA CITY (WKRC) - An Oklahoma woman says she found a dog wandering near her apartment suffering from multiple stab wounds.

The dog had suffered about 20 stab wounds, according to KFOR.

He came over, he just looked at me like 'I need your help' and I just cried.

The woman gave the dog, now named Valor, water and called police.

"I thought someone had taken an ax to his head, because the wounds were really open," she said.

The city's animal welfare superintendent, Jon Gary, said the dog had to have emergency surgery and is expected to survive.

Police said they do not have any suspects at this time, but do believe they have found the weapon used in the attack.

"We're relieved that this dog will survive, but we need the community's help to find someone who witnesses the attack or who can put us in touch with his owner," Gary told KOKH.

The woman who found the dog said she and her daughter hope to foster the dog while it recovers until it can be adopted.

They started a Facebook page and fundraising account for Valor's medical expenses.

The Facebook page cover photo says, "please help give this baby his best chance <3".
