The RSPCA is appealing for information after a dog was thrown from a car on Wednesday morning in Hednesford.
The dog, which is now being cared for by the RSPCA, was found 'in a very sorry state'.
"When I saw her, she was extremely emaciated. Her claws are extremely overgrown to the point where they were growing back into the pads. She had no collar or micro-chip either so we don’t even know her name," said RSPCA Inspector Jayne Bashford.
The dog was dumped out of a white BMW on Rawnsley Road, Hednesford, at the junction with Stringers Hill.
Anyone with information is urged to call the RSPCA.
