LA VERGNE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A dog that was caught on camera being dragged by a car in La Vergne earlier this month was adopted by a new family Thursday.

According to PAWS of Rutherford County, the dog, who was renamed “CJ,” has a new forever home with a family who has a large fenced in back yard with plenty of room for him to play in.  Timothy Sams, dog dragged

CJ, a 10-month-old Husky mix, was treated for his injuries at Rutherford County PAWS for the last two weeks. He reportedly received laser therapy to help speed the healing of his wounds and to regenerate his skin.

Timothy Sams, of La Vergne, was charged with aggravated animal cruelty and resisting arrest due to the incident.

A second dog named Angel was also rescued from Sams’ home.  Angel, a pit bull mix, did not have food, water, or shelter and was tied to a cinder block.

PAWS said Angel will be ready for adoption soon.
