TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The woman charged in connection with the puppy found abandoned in Troy was due in Troy City Court Tuesday morning. This is the third court date now defendant Kadisha Davis, 34, has failed to make an appearance in court.

Davis has been charged for her role in allegedly injuring and abandoning a Rottweiler puppy, and now, a judge has issued a bench warrant for her arrest. No new court date will be set; under the bench warrant, if law enforcement locates her, they will take her into custody.

Davis was initially arrested in February after a Rottweiler puppy now named Deniro was found with multiple injuries inside a box outside of a gas station. The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society said the puppy had a slack jaw, discolored and hanging tongue, along with dry blood caked to its coat. The animal shelter named the pup and performed many surgeries on him.

NEWS10 recently checked in with the humane society. Deniro is a true cutie, a playful, silly puppy that’s growing in size and happiness! He is still with his foster family, and though his tail is always wagging, it will be months before he’s available for a permanent adoption process.
