Dog Named Loyal Finds a New Home

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A special dog named Loyal was found in a grassy field off Roddfield Road. He was running with another dog that somehow got hit by a car.

Loyal dragged the other dog to the field, and refused to leave its side, hence the nickname that Animal Control officers chose for him.

The thing is, the City shelter is full, and they said they would be forced to put Loyal to sleep unless someone came forward and agreed to give him a home.

Well, on Tuesday, many of your neighbors did just that.

Bettye Avery showed up at the Animal Control offices on Tuesday to adopt Loyal. She has a Lhasa Apso named Cindy who she says will be glad to see the new addition to the family.
