SEYMOUR, Conn. -- A puppy that survived a brutal knife attack nearly a year ago spent her first Christmas at her new home.
Amazing Grace, a 1 year-old Labrador-retriever mix, was adopted by Seymour dog warden Joe LaRovera. His wife, Dianne, said that she's the perfect puppy and is wonderful with kids. She also likes trying to sneak Christmas cookies.
In January, police charged 20-year-old Seymour resident Brannon Chandler with animal cruelty.
They said he slit the throats of his roommate's six puppies and left them in a wire basket in the woods behind his home. Amazing Grace was the only survivor.
Chandler was sentenced in October to two years in prison, to be followed by three years' probation on six counts of cruelty to animals.
Amazing Grace has bonded with the LaRovera's other dog, a two-year-old beagle named Lacie, and the two like to play together.
