A Raleigh woman is getting to know her new puppy after winning the right to adopt a pit bull that had been set on fire in July in Fayetteville.
The Fayetteville Observer reported that Red was headed home with Catherine Woodard on Friday.
The Woodards were among the more than 100 people who asked to be included in a drawing to find a new home for Red. The dog was about 11 weeks old when he was set on fire, leaving a large scar along his left side and another along his left leg.
Investigators charged 24-year-old Tony Brian Knolle with animal cruelty. Knolle has not been tried in the case.
