SPRINGDALE, Pa. — Humane officers are looking for a woman who threw a dog out of her car on Monday.
Jackie Armour, who runs Paws Across Pittsburgh, found the white dog running on Orchard Street in Springdale.
"So I kind of followed him around and getting out sporadically trying offer him treats. So for about an hour we did that," Armour said.
She told Channel 11 once she was able to retrieve the dog and bring him back to her place, that's when she heard how Murphy ended up on his own.
She said that on Sunday afternoon, a woman was spotted opening her car door and tossing the dog out before taking off.
"Just furious. I mean, the poor little guy ran all night the night we had bad storms. When we caught him, he was covered in burrs," Armour said.
Besides looking a little rough after a night wandering around, Murphy is doing OK. But Armour now needs help in finding who dumped him.
"She was bleached blonde, in a four-door tan-colored car," Armour said.
Humane officer Mindy James said the person responsible for tossing and neglecting Murphy could also face hundreds of dollars in fines.
“I believe now those charges are misdemeanor, so she could be facing fines, definitely," James said.
