RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A Chihuahua stuffed into a burlap sack and dumped along a Southern California roadway is recovering at a Riverside animal adoption center.

A center volunteer was driving to work on Monday when she saw something moving inside the tied-up sack along a road in Mead Valley.

She untied the sack, looked inside and saw the dirty, shivering dog.

It's unclear how long the dog was abandoned in the sack.

Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center spokeswoman Carrie Ridgeway tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise that the dog's ears were caked with mud and there were insect bites on its body.

Adoption center workers have named the 3-year-old dog Angel.
