In August, a man was caught on camera abandoning a dog on the side of the road just outside of Dallas, Texas. As LFT reported, he was the first arrest after secret video surveillance was installed by officials at the popular dog-dumping site — and thanks to this initiative, justice is being served to the man responsible for the cruelty.
The helpless dog, named KD, was found nine hours after being dumped; the Dowdy Ferry Animal Commission immediately took her to a Dallas shelter.
A month later, KD has settled into a forever home with Reagan Henderson and Zachary San Roman, a couple who visited the SPCA in search of a dog to call their own.
Before knowing KD’s sad past, the couple had already decided she was the one for them. “She was so sweet; we both knew we had to get her,” said Henderson.
Despite the trauma she endured, KD was ready to love and to be loved.
Her new life comes with lots of belly rubs, walks, and even her own Instagram page called ‘kdishome‘. She can be found at the pet supply shop picking out new toys or sitting on the couch watching TV with her family.
“No more chaining for KD ever again,” said Henderson.
KD has a wonderful life ahead of her thanks to the video surveillance initiative and the compassionate couple who adopted her. With this new system, the cruelty of dog dumping in the city of Dallas will hopefully meet its end, and many more sweet dogs like KD will enjoy happily ever afters.
