More than 40 people want to adopt Louie, the Yorkshire Terrier that survived Sunday, a Baltimore County Animal Shelter assistant said.
"He's a spunky little guy, he feels a lot better and he's very active," said Amy Clark, a kennel assistant at the shelter in Baldwin.
People who want to be considered to adopt the dog are still able to sign up, Clark said.
Louie, who is a little nervous after his abuse, is between 3 and 4-years-old, Clark said. Because of the recent abuse, the shelter is being extremely selective with who it chooses to adopt Louie.
The animal shelter is located at 13800 Manor Road. Visiting hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Call 410-887-5961 for more information.
