A caged Yorkshire terrier was found abandoned on the side of a snowy road in an upstate New York town Friday morning.

A passerby near the intersection of White Pond and Farmers Mills roads in Kent contacted police after spotting the pooch.

Officials say the dog, an approximately 4- to 6-year-old male Yorkie, was found huddled in a small black metal crate in a snowy patch of property just off the side of the road.
