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.
"The RSPCA faces a crisis that is stretching us to breaking point."
"We show zero tolerance to animal abusers. Anyone causing animals pain for profit or pleasure will be tracked down and prosecuted."
"We need the courts and councils, police and people who care to join us in standing up and getting justice for Britain's abused animals."
