A poor dog was burned to death so badly the RSPCA couldn't work out its breed.
The evil yobs responsible for lighting the dog on fire are now being hunted by the animal organisation.
A passer-by alerted the authorities on October 6 to charred remains of an animal on top of a fly-tipping spot in Middlesbrough.
The fire damage to the dog was so severe that investigators at animal charity, RSPCA could not figure out what breed it was.
The only evidence deciphered from the burned out body is that the dog was medium to large in size and had a black and tan coat.

A public appeal is now being made in the area to find the thugs responsible and who the dog belonged to.
Inspector Ruth Thomas-Coxon said the organisation was appealing for information.
She said: "Unfortunately, due to the fire damage to the body, it’s difficult to determine much more about the dog.
"That’s why we’re appealing to the public for any information that may help us establish where this poor dog has come from and whether he or she has died in suspicious circumstances.
“What isn’t clear at this time is whether the dog was alive or already dead when set on fire so it’s obviously incredibly important to establish this and whether this dog suffered at the hands of someone.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact the RSPCA’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
