A pet chihuahua that was beaten and tortured during a burglary appears to be improving.

We told you about the dog, "Ike," last week. Police say the little dog was beaten with a bat, stabbed and his genitals burned in the burglary at a Pasadena home last week. Veterinarians caring for the dog say he's more alert, though he's on 24-hour watch.

The suspects in the burglary and animal cruelty case have not been caught.
