Elizabeth Byrdic, one of the dog’s owners, has been utilizing social media to keep people updated about the dog’s injuries, and to help find whoever is responsible. On July 5, Byrdic wrote, “$500.00 REWARD for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who attacked Major Payne Byrdic on June 9th, 2016 in the Big Dam community of Andrews, S.C. in the vicinity of Winterberry Drive.
