In Coxsackie, New York, the Greene County Sheriff’s Office announced an arrest has been made in the case of an abused and neglected dog named Penny.
According to a press release issued by the sheriff’s office, Paul C. Bull, 47, has been charged with one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty under the Agriculture and Markets Law of New York. On January 12, the three-year-old pitbull mix had wandered up to a home where the owners immediately called authorities. Dubbed Penny, the friendly dog was taken to the Columbia-Greene Humane Society in Ghent and examined.
Penny is currently being treated for multiple infections and a severe case of mange.
“Penny is a gentle, sweet dog that deserves a better life than she’s had so far,” stated Columbia Greene Humane Society/SPCA president Ron Perez.
Although Penny’s condition is very painful, she is responding well to treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.
