Just in time for Christmas, a dog that was severely injured after being dragged for nearly a mile down I-55 last November is getting a forever home.
Trooper the dog will go home Friday with his new owner. The St. Louis man who adopted the energetic pit-bull is an experience dog owner who recently lost his own pit-bull after years of companionship. Humane Society of Missouri president Kathy Warnick says narrowing down the list of applicants wasn't easy.
Trooper's new "dad" works from home, so he'll be able to spend lots of time with the dog as he continues to recover from his injuries.
