Update on dog who was frozen to the ground in Indiana

See also

According to Sunday's publication of the Tristate Homepage, the dog who was found frozen to the ground in rural Dubois County, Ind., in early January, has been adopted.

The sheltie mix, named "Peanut," had been at the Dubois County Humane Society since he was seized from the home of 50-year-old George Kimmel and 55-year-old Dorothy Kimmel.

Though Peanut had offers of adoption from people across the nation, the couple which were ultimately selected to be his new guardians did not even know his sad history.

For Carol and Keith Fitch, it was love at first sight for the little survivor.

Carol Fitch described her husband's reaction when he first saw Peanut:

"Keith says that's the dog I want,"

The couple that allowed Peanut to endure the subzero temperatures outside earlier this month have been charged with animal cruelty and they are due in court next month.
