The dog seen on social media being shot by flames has been adopted, according to Susan Danielsen with the Greensboro Police Department.
The video shows a teenage girl using an aerosol can and lighter to create flames that she pointed toward the dog.
The original Snapchat video was posted to Facebook, and it didn’t take long to spread on social media.
The caption in the read, “she burnt the dog.”
The Guilford County sheriff’s office was alerted to the video. Animal control went to the dog’s home Sunday morning to begin their investigation. The dog’s fur was singed, but its skin was not burned.
Two dozen families tried to adopt Bella, but her forever home was eventually found. The new owners didn’t want to appear on television for fear of the dog’s safety. They said they just want Bella to live out the rest of her life in a peaceful environment.
No charges have been filed against the two Guilford County, NC juveniles involved, a 13 and 14-year-old girl.
