It’s a story that will capture your heart - a small dog is searching for a home after being hit by a car and abandoned on the side of a road in Greene County.

The good news here is that the little pup isn't in pain anymore, but SPCA officials say she probably suffered for quite some time before healing.

Now, the folks at the Columbia-Greene Humane Society are eager to find a home for what they call, "one of the kindest dogs they've ever had."

With a cautious walk and a curious face, Honey Bun the beagle makes her way over to our camera.

Ron Perez, President of the Columbia-Greene Humane Society, tells us that someone found the little pup sitting on the side of the road, all alone.

“When she was found she was hardly moving,” he said.

Perez tells us Dog Control brought Honey Bun to the SPCA on August 2nd.

An exam revealed that her pelvis was at one point fractured, and Perez thinks the dog was hit by a car.

He tells us she never got any medical treatment, so her pelvis healed improperly.

“You can see the distortion here, the way her hips are,” Perez said.

Perez says Honey Bun was abandoned.

With those oversized ears, a lovable face, and a sweet demeanor, none of us can understand why.

“It's just individuals that are uncaring, they don't want to take the time out to make a few phone calls to find out what the alternatives are other than abandoning your animal, which is a misdemeanor,” Perez said.

The SPCA hopes someone will give Honey Bun a better life than she's had so far.

Perez says the best fit, would be a mature household - a quiet family that can let this mild-mannered pup take her time getting around.

“In the proper home, she will be a wonderful pet,” Perez said.

Honey Bun’s adoption has been sponsored, so the typical adoption fee will be waived.
