Adoption Interest Grows For Burned Puppy

A North Carolina puppy found beaten and burned in a park in August has up to 60 people interested in adopting her.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported Tuesday that interviews will begin next week to find a home for Susie, a pit-bull mix puppy found with severe second and third-degree burns on most of her body.

Officials at the Guilford County Animal Shelter say they're impressed with how quickly she is recovering after being found in a Greensboro park with burned ears and a broken jaw and teeth.

Veterinarians say Susie will need to be an inside dog and will require sunblock when she's outside.

Officials will conduct interviews and do home visits to narrow down the list. A drawing will likely determine who will adopt her.
