GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — The dog that was abandoned at a Greensboro park with a bookbag and note has found a new home, according to Guilford County Animal Services.
Officials with the center said he was left at the park on Halloween and was roaming around looking for his owner.
Phil Valla was one of the people who shared a social media post about “Houdini” to help find his owner.
“I felt really bad for the dog just because I’m an animal lover. The dog had obviously been abandoned and had a connection with its owner, and the owner just left it there,” Valla said.
Valla said a woman told him she saw the dog around 3 p.m. that Monday. He said the woman told park employees, who also found a backpack with all Houdini’s belonging inside and a note attached.
“Probably was traumatized because it was going up to people looking for its owner,” Valla said.
The shepard mix breed dog stayed at the Guilford County Animal Resource Center while waiting to be adopted.
As of Saturday, Houdini has a brand new loving home.
Officials with the center have not released what the note said because of an active investigation into finding the owner of Houdini.
