When the NYPD found Jamie the 4-year-old Pit Bull Terrier Mix, she was a neglected shell of her now beautiful self.
According to TODAY, this poor girl was just skin and bones, covered in urine and feces with nails so long, they curled around her feet.
Thanks to the good work of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the New York police, her former owner has been arrested and charged with animal cruelty. His active case is with the Brooklyn District Attorney's office.
After six months of recovery and rehabilitation, at the Canine Annex for Recovery and Enrichment facility, this tender pup is ready for adoption!
The ASPCA describes her as a cuddly social butterfly who loves meeting new people.
Just look at that sweet face!
Some New York police officers took gentle Jamie out for a day of fun and adventure! They went to the dog park and took a drive in the police van. She ate pup cakes, and got plenty of belly rubs!
The NYPD have been partnering with the ASPCA on cases of animal abuse for three years and is the first of its kind!
The NYPD respond to all animal cruelty complaints in New York City, and the ASPCA provides care and backup legal support/training.
ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement Vice President, Howard Lawrence, says that the partnership has caused a "triple-digit increases in arrests and animals treated." TODAY reports that over 850 animals have been treated by the ASPCA this year.
