Pup Rescued From Car Engine AdoptedPublished August 11, 2011
Scarlett, a Chinese Shar-Pei puppy, was found last month trapped inside a place where probably no animal wishes to find themselves: a car engine.
The puppy, who was found battered, burned and drenched in oil, has undergone much surgery and general rehabilitation and, after nearly a month, was deemed suitably healthy for adoption.
Due to her predicament and the outpouring of support for Scarlett in the Arizona area, she was considered a high prize for a potential adopter. As a result, the Arizona Humane Society stepped in and held a randomized drawing that would decide Scarlett's new family.
The winner: Peoria resident Virginia Kemp, who is already the proud dog mother to two other dogs at home.
