A happily ever after is in store for the dog who was nearly stabbed to death by her St. Johns County, Fla., owner.
According to Wednesday's First Coast News, Dan Sorrells with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Department, has officially adopted "Amber," the mixed breed dog who was attacked by 28-year-old Randal Hart on Sunday night.
Deputy Sorrells was one of the responding deputies to the animal cruelty call. According to the Florida Times-Union, Sorrells followed a blood trail to find the badly injured dog and when he spotted her and called out, she walked right up to him.
Deputy Sorrells is paying for all of Amber's veterinary expenses and will be able to bring her home as soon as she is well enough to leave the clinic.
Amber will be joining two other dogs at her new home - both rescues as well.
Hart was arrested and is facing an animal cruelty charge for the attack.
