LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A dog that has captured the hearts and minds of many remains in critical condition.

The canine, dubbed "Hope", was found September 28 after being thrown from a car on I-65. The dog was struck by another car almost immediately and ended up in the center median.

Hope underwent surgery the following evening to repair two spinal fractures. Her doctors say she will need at least one more surgery.

Police are still looking for the dark-colored car that the dog flew out of onto the interstate.

The US Humane Society is offering a $2500 reward in the case.
