The Greene County Sheriff's Office says a 47-year-old man has been arrested on misdemeanor animal cruelty charges.
Paul Bull of Coxsackie is accused of dumping "Penny," a pit bull mix suffering from a severe case of mange, along the side of a road.
The dog was taken to the Columbia-Greene Humane Society.
'Penny" is said to be doing better this morning, but still has a long way to go.
