According to the sheriff's office, it happened near the intersection of Orchid Lake Road and Floral View Way in New Port Richey. 

The driver was described as a "large heavyset female," around 45 years old, with blonde hair pulled back into a pony tail, and wearing glasses.  The vehicle was a white or grey minivan of unknown make or model.

The dog suffered a broken pelvis and is now in the care of Pasco Animal Services.
