Blue Grass police and Scott County Animal Control have closed their investigation, according to Pam Arndt who is the Executive Director at the Humane Society. Authorities were unable to find the dog's former owners or the person who tied her to a pole and left her.

The dog still has some assessments to go through before she's ready to find her forever home. That includes further medical treatment and checking her mental health. Rescuers will also take time to determine what type of home she should be in.

Once she is ready for adoption, Arndt tells TV6 they will post it on Facebook and their website. She says, "It'll be first come, first adopt!"
