Queenie the dog finds new loving home

Thursday, March 07, 2013

There's a heart-warming update about Queenie, a pit bull that nearly starved after being left to die in Suffolk County.

Queenie has gained enough weight to leave the animal hospital and she has a new home!

Weeks ago she was just skin and bones when her owner's estranged wife found her locked in a room.

She hadn't eaten for weeks.

She's now at home with her new owner.

Queenie's long-term prognosis isn't good because she suffered kidney failure from being starved, but now she has a loving home.

Her former owner is now facing criminal charges.
