Cortlandville, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Cortland Community SPCA’s Humane Law Enforcement Department is searching for the owner of an abandoned dog.

According to the SPCA, the dog is pregnant and has three severely deformed paws.

The dog, named "Little Lady" by workers, is currently recuperating at the SPCA shelter after returning from the Cornell Companion Animal Hospital, where she received emergency treatment.

The SPCA said Little Lady was picked up the morning of June 29 after a resident on Pendleton Street Ext. in the Town of Cortlandville, told a Humane Law Enforcement Officer she was on his property.

According to the SPCA, Little Lady's paws make it difficult and painful for her to walk.

The SPCA’s Humane Law Enforcement Department said it's investigating this case as an abandonment, as "there is no way she could have walked to where she was found without causing herself further injury."

Little Lady will soon be up for adoption and the shelter said she is one of the sweetest dogs the Cortland Community SPCA has ever come across.

Little Lady is reddish in color, possibly a Kelpie in breed, and able to walk in grass and most likely carpeting.

Anyone with information on who may have abandoned this dog is asked to contact the Cortland Community’s Humane Law Enforcement Department at (607) 753-9386.
