Pit Bull Turns into Internet Sensation
YouTube Video Of 'Dolly' Viewed By Thousands
SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. -- A pit bull in Seminole County just may be the next Internet sensation.
Dolly was a stray when she came in to Seminole County Animal Control back in 2009.
She was adopted out, but when she was turned back in earlier this year, she didn't look the same.
Dolly was scratched, bloody, and cut in several spots, animal control officials said.
The owner said she was starting fights with his other dogs, but animal control has a different theory.
They think Dolly was used as possibly a "bait dog" in a dogfighting operation.
Now Dolly's healed and
Erica Daniel, the shelter worker who intended to foster her, has decided to keep her.

"I want people to understand what goes on with these dogs. I want people to understand how important it is to adopt shelter dogs," Daniel said.
Daniel has made Dolly's success story into a YouTube video that has already been viewed by thousands.

OMG! Such a sad story with a wonderful, happy ending. This beautiful girl has captured my heart! I am so glad she found her forever home. She deserves the life she has been given, surrounded by a loving family. This video had me bawling like a baby. Dolly is a positive representative on pit bull type dogs everywhere, able to overcome the cruelties that she suffered at the hands of man and become a breed ambassador. I am so happy you found your forever home, Dolly!!
