BURLINGTON, N.C. — A terminally ill Burlington girl has a new puppy after someone stole her puppy during a home break-in earlier this month.

Dakaia Gray, 8, is battling brain cancer.

On Aug. 4, while the family was away, someone broke into their home and stole Dakaia’s 11-week-old American bully Annabella.

Annabella brought her lots of comfort. Since FOX8’s story, several people offered Dakaia a new puppy — so many she had to pick one.

Shala Browning, Dakaia’s mom, said the girl has decided on Bailey as her new puppy.

Thomas Holmes gave Dakaia the puppy.
