UPDATE: Yonkers Officer Gives Puppy Abused On Camera Forever Home

BRIARCLIFF MANOR, Westchester County – One month after a puppy was rescued from horrific abuse, a police officer has decided to give her a forever home.

Yonkers police received a phone call from a good Samaritan on May 13 after witnessing a 6-month-old pit bull puppy being dragged and then violently picked up by her neck and thrown outside of the suspect’s apartment building. The abuse was all caught on camera.

The alleged abuser, 41-year-old Kiani Wright, faces animal cruelty charges.

The day the dog, named Pebbles, was rescued, Officer Neville Bennett met her at the Third Precinct stationhouse. Pebbles played with Officer Bennett for an hour, even though she was originally skittish.

She was withdrawn. She didn’t want to interact with people too much. It looked like she was afraid,” Bennet said. “As a police officer, we normally protect people, and I felt compelled to protect the dog.”

Pebbles was taken to the SPCA of Westchester, but Officer Bennett didn’t forget her.

Finally, after weeks of debating whether or not to adopt her, Officer Bennett decided Friday to give the pup her forever home.

Bennett plans to change her name to Lady.
