The "missing" dog allegedly nabbed by members of the Lawrence County Humane Society has found a new home.

Robert Beasley, the president of the Humane Society, said the group came to an agreement with the owner to allow another family to adopt the animal. Beasley said the Humane Society had started negotiations with the owner, Charles R. Cremeans of Windsor Township, since county Municipal Court Judge Donald Capper issued an order to return the dog after the misdemeanor abuse charges were dropped.

Beasley said he could not discuss the terms of the agreement due to a nondisclosure clause. Beasley did say the animal would require life-long care – care Beasley said the owner was not sure he could provide.

Beasley said the animal was not adopted out prior to the agreement between Cremeans and the humane society. He said the dog was originally placed in foster care because the animal needed around-the-clock treatment which could not have been provided at the shelter because it is not open all of the time. Beasley said he was aware of the animal’s location during the whole ordeal.
