Adorable adoption: Puppy finds forever home after officers rescue dog from hot car at casino
LAS VEGAS (KVVU/Gray News) - The dog who was locked in a car while her owner gambled at a Las Vegas Strip casino has found a new home.
The Animal Foundation shared on Wednesday that the dog named Dutchess has been adopted since the incident and is living with her forever family.
The animal shelter said the officer who helped rescue the puppy back in July also visited her before her new family adopted her.
Las Vegas police said they were called to the Bellagio hotel-casino on July 20 regarding a dog locked in a parked car with summer temperatures nearing 115 degrees that afternoon.
Responding officers reported finding the dog locked in a car with its mouth taped shut while the owner was inside gambling. Police said the dog was without food, water and air conditioning while the owner gambled for nearly two hours.
According to the Animal Foundation, Dutchess enjoys going for walks, playing with her new toys and spending time with her new dog sibling, Tobey.
