PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - A dog that was dragged behind a pickup truck in early November in a suspected animal cruelty case in south Phoenix has made a recovery and is now up for adoption. The Arizona Humane Society said that Sheila, a one-year-old German shepherd, is up for adoption at the PetSmart Scottsdale location.

She was brought to AHS by Phoenix police officers after being reportedly dragged behind a truck. A 43-year-old man was arrested in connection with the crime.

Sheila had multiple severe cuts and other injuries across her body. She has gone through multiple surgeries to close the wounds spread across her body and has been fostered by a family for several weeks.
