An abused puppy in Troy is on the mend. Police have arrested the woman they say injured and abandoned him.

Khadijah Davis, 34, is now facing animal cruelty-related charges.

Police say a passerby found the dog in a box at a gas station earlier this month.

His injuries included a fractured jaw, broken ribs, and his chest and legs were caked in drool and dried blood. His jowls were also swollen and there was a foul smell coming from his mouth.

The puppy is now recovering with a foster family. Police say it will likely be months before he’s ready to be adopted.
