BRYAN, Texas – An 8-week-old puppy is expected to make a full recovery after being dragged down a highway for nearly a mile.

The driver said it's not his fault.

Walter Samano said a young boy tied the puppy to the trailer hitch and left him there. Samano drove off a while later only to have someone flag him down a mile away.

He said he untied the puppy and left him by the side of the road because he was scared. He has been charged with animal cruelty.
