DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - An animal rights group is calling for justice after a dog was found dead just days after being adopted from a local shelter. 

Officials say the pitbull mix named 'Titan' was adopted from the Garland Animal Shelter last Friday. Sometime over the weekend, his body was found dumped on Dowdy Ferry Road near the Trinity River in southeast Dallas.

Animal rights group Dallas DogRRR says on Facebook that Titan was shot in the head. They question whether he was adopted for the purpose of being abused and killed. 

Dallas Police and the SPCA of Texas are investigating Titan's death as an animal cruelty incident, but police have not elaborated about a potential suspect.
