SPARTANBURG, S.C. — A Spartanburg woman has been arrested after authorities say she put a small dog in a trash can twice.

Fifty-eight-year-old Nancy Smythe was charged with ill treatment of animals after she was arrested Thursday.

County environmental enforcement director Jamie Nelson says an employee of a private trash collection company found the small, black and white Shih Tzu in a trash can and took it to the house, where the woman said it was hers.

The employee called animal control officers, who found the dog back in the same trash can when they arrived.

The dog was taken to Greenville County Animal Control, where it’s been named Oreo.

Officials say the dog will be available for adoption.
