In mid-December a 10 week old Jack Russel terrier was found in a trash bin in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The puppy was locked in a pet carrier. Luckily, a good Samaritan heard the puppy whining and unearthed the puppy from the trash bin, which was located behind an apartment building. The Pawtucket police have arrested the woman responsible, according to WCVB.

The carrier was full of feces and the puppy was covered in filth. Though the terrier was dehydrated, hungry and dirty, the puppy was okay, according to WHDH.

Jennifer McRae, 32 years old, was charged with cruelty to animals, obstructing police and abandonment of animals, as reported by WCVB. McRae was let go on $2,500 bail. She claimed to have bought the puppy but then gave it to a friend because of her landlord. Police arrested her when this was determined to be false.

The terrier puppy has recovered and was adopted.
