COVENTRY, R.I. (WPRI) – A happy ending to a shocking case of animal abuse.

According to Coventry Police, “Lucky” the dog has a new family and home.

The male golden retriever was found severely malnourished in September.

He has since gone on to gain a lot of weight and was healthy enough to be adopted.

Lucky’s original owner, Sean O’Leary, has been charged with animal cruelty.
