MARBLE FALLS, Texas -- A 27-year-old woman has been charged with cruelty to animals after neighbors witnessed her dragging her five-pound Yorkshire Terrier by its leash with her Ford Expedition. 

Witnesses told police that Maricela Sanchez was driving about 10 mph with the dog trying to keep up.
 
“The way her pads were, they were completely gone like as if you or I had the skin on the bottom our feet completely worn down until the bottom of our muscle,” said Jacey Ferguson with Marble Falls Animal Control.
 
Mimi also lost a number of her toenails which were torn off during the ordeal.
 
Mimi is now with a foster family and has to have all of her paws bathed in Epsom salts four times a day.
 
If convicted, Maricela Sanchez could receive up to two years in prison.
