Jamie was extremely skinny and covered in urine and feces at the time of her rescue. Her nails were so long they were beginning to curl around her feet. Jamie's previous owner, Jahmil Barrett, was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.

Jamie is currently at the ASPCA's Adoption Center in New York City, where she's shown herself to be "a total social butterfly."

To give her extra publicity, New York police officers took her out for a day of fun and adventure. Jamie went to a dog park, rode in a police van, got lots of belly rubs, and was treated to some delicious pup-cakes.

"Victims of animal cruelty have incredible capacities to overcome past abuse and become loving companions. We are fortunate to see examples of this every day at the ASPCA," explained ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement vice president Howard Lawrence. "It's important for people to understand that dogs who've suffered, like Jamie, make great pets and are certainly just as deserving of safe, loving homes as any other adoptable animal."
