The search is on for a poodle that Suffolk SPCA officials say was abandoned in Babylon by the same man who was arrested for leaving a live dog in a West Islip dumpster last week. 

Bailey, a 5-year-old male cream colored poodle, was last seen on Cooper Street in Babylon Village last Monday morning, according to the SPCA. 

A $500 reward is being offered for information that leads to Bailey's recovering. 

Bailey was last seen on the same morning that officials say Michael Papini, 30, was caught on surveillance video throwing a plastic bag containing a live dog in a dumpster behind a West Islip gas station. That dog, a Lhasa apso, was found alive in the dumpster Tuesday morning and is now at the Islip Animal Shelter. 

Papini, who has been suspended without pay from his job as a kennel assistant at the Islip Animal Shelter, is currently charged with with felony aggravated animal cruelty and animal abandonment. 

Those with information on Bailey's location should contact the SPCA at 631-382-7722.
