Last week we told you this horrible story of a shockingly abused dog that was allegedly found in a garbage bag in Wall covered in filth. It turned out that the story wasn't quite that cut and dry.

After an investigation, a Brick couple - the couple who actually claimed to have "found" the dog in the first place, were arrested and charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty.

This story has pulled at the hearts of so many of us, and it's nice to see that the dog, now named "Samurai" or "Sammy" is slowly doing better. He is eating small amounts of food and is somewhat responsive. The Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, where he's being nursed back to health, has been keeping the updates coming on a regular basis.
