Abused Pit Bull Now Doing Much Better

Danville. VA-- You may remember we told you about a dog from Danville that was found in horrible conditions last month.

Officials found pit bull Dawn chained to the ground covered in flies and maggots. Well, now Dawn is doing much better.

After spending time getting necessary treatment, she is now at the Danville Area Humane Society and is up for adoption. The Humane Society said she's made a tremendous recovery.

"I think that the picture of Dawn on the chain covered with flies could be the poster picture for a lot of cruelty cases," said Paulette Dean, Executive Director of Danville Area Humane Society.

Dawn's former owners are no longer allowed to have companion animals. They are both facing up to six charges and up to a year behind bars.
