The Putnam County SPCA is asking the public for help in finding the person or persons who abandoned an approximately five year old Yorkshire terrier on the side of the road in upstate New York on December 27, 2013. The dog was found near the intersection of White Pond and Farmers Mills Road in Kent, according to the Putnam County SPCA.

Luckily a passerby spotted the huddled dog and called the Kent police department. The crate was exposed to the elements and the small dog had only the plastic bottom between its paws and the snow. The Kent dog control officer retrieved the dog from freezing temperatures early in the morning.

Anyone with any information is urged to call the Putnam County SPCA at 845-520-6915. Calls may be anonymous. New York law states abandoning an animal is a misdemeanor, which carries a fine up to $1,000 or a prison sentence of up to one year, or a combination of both.
