An abused dog is out of the hands of her alleged abuser following a Pound Ridge police investigation with the SPCA's law enforcement unit.

Paul Paulino, of Pound Ridge, was charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

Police believe Paulino abused 4-year-old Lady her entire life. He allegedly choked her, rubbed her nose into concrete and punched her. As a result, the SPCA says Lady has a callus and thickened skin on her nose.

Despite the rough conditions, officials say she is still a happy dog.
