"Taz" has come a long way from where she was just a week and a half ago, after she was stabbed and left in a dumpster for dead.
"We've been constantly monitoring her every morning, every day throughout the day. She's been recovering real good," said Maegan Jennings, who was selected to adopt Taz.
Jennings has been taking care of Taz at the clinic since she was brought in. She took Taz home Friday afternoon after she was picked from a list of more than thirty people to adopt the 14-week-old puppy.
"It's amazing. When I first saw her, she was just laying still," said APD Lt. Mike Collins, who was the first officer to find Taz after her previous owner left her to die.
Collins immediately took Taz to the vet and even footed the bill for her medical care.
"The guys and the gals that I work with at the PD, soon as they heard about it, they started to donate money," Collins said.
Taz's previous owner, Larry Dollins, was arrested last week on cruelty to animals charges. He remains behind bars at the Taylor County Jail.
