VIDEO: Puppy Graces Family After Rough Start

An abandoned 3-month-old puppy suffering from head injuries has now recovered and was adopted Friday from County Animal Services. The young pit bull (named Grace) was found in a milk crate near a burning dumpster in the Crest area on Feb. 13. Now fully healed, the pup left the shelter with her new family for a life full of hugs, kisses and (she hopes) many tennis balls.
