Abandoned dog finds a home, another pup still in Orange shelter

Justice, an abandoned pit bull, has been adopted.

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Remember the pit bulls that were left abandoned in the middle of the road in Orange County? Well, good news! One of the dogs, named Justice, has found a permanent home.

The two dogs, Justice and Liberty, were found along South Orange and Oakridge Avenues in Pine Castle on Oct. 26. Bystanders noticed the distressed and frightened animals and called police for help.

When the officers got to the scene, they waited with and comforted the dogs until Animal Services arrived. 

This story has become a social sensation, and the dogs are still getting a lot of attention. Justice, the grey dog, has been adopted, but Liberty, the red dog, is still waiting to find a forever home, according to Orange County Animal Services.

Liberty is a 2-year-old brown-and-white female. She's heartworm positive and weighs 54 pounds. You can find information about her here.

People interested in adopting Liberty can visit Orange County Animal services at 2769 Conroy Rd. in Orlando, or online at ocfl.net.
