Dog left for dead lives on with new owners

Posted: Updated:

PORTAGE (WKOW) -- Just days after Columbia County's Misty the dog was found near death by hunters, a happy ending is now in store for her.

27 News was there as her "forever family", Todd and Brenda Vesely took Misty home Friday.  They work as part of an animal hospice foster program. 

More than 50 families applied to take Misty.  

The Veselys say they plan to nurse the 15-year-old dog back to health.  

You may recall, authorities say the black Labrador was hit over the head with a hammer by her previous owner.   She required 19 staples to close the injuries.

Terri Lynn Benson was charged with two counts of animal cruelty this past week.  

Here are some earlier stories about Misty's journey.
