Abused & Neglected Dog Placed In Forever Home

The dog left for dead in a ditch a couple winters ago has found its forever home.

The Capital Area Humane Society says Tatiana was accepted into McKenzie's Animal Sanctuary in Lake Odessa, which specializes in finding loving homes for abused and neglected dogs.

Because of Tatiana's specific needs and personality, she could not be adopted into a traditional home. She was found hog-tied and bound with duct tape in a ditch by a Good Samaritan in January 2011. The man who left her there, Ray Potter of Dimondale, was eventually arrested and sentenced to 93 days in jail, community service, probation and $11,000 in fines.

The Capital Area Humane Society is throwing a Going Home Party for Tatiana on Tuesday, October 2nd at 12pm at its facility at 7095 West Grand River in Lansing. The public is welcome to attend and bring toys to send Tatiana to her new home with. There will also be a card for people to sign, as well as snacks and refreshments.

    Kendra, methinks you need to lighten up a bit, especially when you deemed the story worthy of reading and commenting on....maybe you should be out helping an abused or neglected human instead of wasting your valuable time on a news message board commenting about an unworthy dog story(see how silly it sounds to harshly judge unnecessarily). I, for one, find this story heartwarming and evidence that there is still enough good in humans to mean we are salvagable as a race, and it put a smile on this human's face, so well worth the read.

    This is excellent news. So happy for you Tatiania. Now you won't ever have to worry that someone will ever hurt you again. Wish the previous owner would of gotten more jail time. Sorry but 93 days in jail just doesn't seem like enough time for what he did to this poor baby.

    Was this dog found in 2012 not 2011? and is it a boy?

    Although I love the fact that this dog is getting a good home, I am shocked from the media coverage about it. I don't recall having this attention from, say, a human abuse story. Perspective please.
