Diego, dog rescued by Bronx police officer, is up for adoption

Meet Diego. An outgoing Bronx dog whose owner was arrested for punching the pooch and four cops has been rehabilitated and is up for adoption, authorities said. Diego is now healthy and looking for a good home.

The ASPCA said Diego is very outgoing and athletic, and so well-mannered that he works with other dogs at their Manhattan facility to teach them how to play nicely. He is one year old, and knows the command, “Sit.”.

This friendly pit bull mix is one year old. Anyone interested in adopting him can visit aspca.org.
