Life has ended tragically for a small dog who was found wrapped in a garbage bag and discarded in a dumpster in Staten Island, New York. According to Friday’s ABC 7 News, the injured dog, dubbed “Patricia,” had been found by good Samaritans on Wednesday evening.

The abandoned and discarded Yorkshire Terrier was rushed to a veterinarian for urgent care, but she was so badly injured that she had to be humanely euthanized. The ASPCA confirmed Patricia’s death on Friday.

Nobody knows how long the six-pound dog was in the Charleston area dumpster before she was found – whoever threw her away may have knowledge of how her little body came to be so broken and investigators want to get to the bottom of the animal cruelty case.

Anyone with information about this tragic situation is asked to call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

    What a disgusting POS who could harm such a tiny, helpless treasure.
    Glad she was found and knew love and care before she died…….
    Hope the worthless POS who did this cruel action is found, is arrested & locked up forever with animal lovers who can give him “special attention”…….
    Hope the rest of his useless life is filled with pain and suffering. Execution would improve our planet since this POS is a waste of resources……
    RIP angel. The monster who did this to you will burn in Hell forever for his cruelty…….

    RIP PATRICIA Unfortunately the monster who did this will most likely never be found and held accountable for this brutal cruelty. Wish I could give u the justice u so richly deserve

    RIP Patricia. Humans did try to save you but you were already on to the Rainbow Bridge. Now you are pain free to romp with your friends. Police need to find out who did this to this tiny dog and make him/her suffer the way Patricia did.

    My heart breaks for what this little one suffered and then thrown away like trash! The human who threw Patricia away is also the abuser! Karma exists and she is a bitch! Patricia rest now no more pain no more fear! I’m so sorry your life ended here in this way! You are healed run and play with new friends! Plenty of food and cool clean water! Good bye sweet angel

      It kills me to think about how she suffered – and then the fear she felt after being abandoned. RIP Patricia. I hope they find the POS who abused you.
