A small dog was injured after someone allegedly threw him from the window of a moving car. As reported by the Troy Daily News, a witnessed observed a small dog, described as a Chihuahua, being thrown from the window of a moving truck on Monday morning; the incident happened on State Route 41 near State Route 202.

The dog was released from veterinary care on Wednesday and will be going to a foster home to recuperate from his injuries. The manager of the Miami County Animal Shelter tells the news agency:
We will potentially be looking into a foster for him where they can keep a close eye on him for any changes in his activity.

“an older gray truck with a camper top.” The truck was possibly a Dodge Dakota or Chevrolet S-10.
