Dog found frozen to ground gets home at sanctuary

LANSING, MI (AP) -

A dog that authorities say was found frozen to the ground in Lansing in 2011 with its legs bound with heavy-duty electrical tape is getting a new home.

The Lansing State Journal reports (http://on.lsj.com/O4HCCp) the pit bull mix named Tatiana spent some of this week surrounded by Capital Area Humane Society staff and volunteers who helped her recover from injuries. Her new home will be at McKenzie's Animal Sanctuary in Lake Odessa.

The Humane Society says the dog has an intense fear of men and strangers. She's been on a waiting list for the sanctuary for about six months.

A Dimondale man who was charged after the dog was found in January 2011 earlier pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor animal abuse charge and was sentenced to jail.
