Puppy responsible for mutilating baby's genitals finds new home

A puppy that mauled a baby found a new home Wednesday, when the Memphis Animal Shelter held a drawing for the 11-week old animal.

Memphis Police investigators say the puppy recently mutilated a baby boy's genitals.  Animal control officers planned to euthanize the puppy, but reversed their decision because of public outcry.

Pat Stowers was the winner of the dog.

"He will have a very happy home," Stowers said. "I have a few other dogs and some cats.  Lots of play area.  I've got a nice place with a half acre backyard, so he should have a lot of fun."

Stowers said her family has not decided on a name for the puppy.

The drawing was held because so many families wanted to adopt the animal.
