Animal welfare officials in the Hudson Valley are asking for the public's help in finding the person who tossed an adorable dog from a moving flat-bed truck last week.

Ann Marie Gaudio, president of the Hudson Valley Humane Society in Pomona, tells NBC 4 New York a woman reported seeing a dog get thrown out the window of a truck around 3:30 p.m. on June 3 on Powell Avenue in Newburgh.

The dog ran after the car, but couldn't catch up. He wasn't injured.

Gaudio says shelter officials have nicknamed the 35-pound pup Bennie; he's a sweet pup about 2 to 4 years old with a wiry white and tan coat and he's already been neutered. 

"He's deliriously happy at our place. He gets three to four walks a day and all the little cookies he can possibly imagine," says Gaudio.

No one has come looking for Bennie, Guadio says, so it doesn't appear he's lost. 

The shelter has already received a flood of applications for Bennie, and Gaudio says a decision about a future home for him may be made as early as this weekend.
