Burned dog finds home
BATON ROUGE - The small dog that was burned by a nine-year-old has finally found a home.
After multiple calls to adopt the terrier named Zoey, a local animal shelter chose a family to adopt her. Zoey is still in recovery, and the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine said her new family is capable of applying the bandages needed for her second-degree burns.
Police said Zoey suffered multiple burns after a young boy lit her bed on fire. Soon after, her owner signed the dog over to animal control.
According to the Companion Animal Alliance, they received nearly $5,000 to pay for Zoey's medical bills after News 2 aired a story about her struggles.
