Abused pit bull puppy adopted; suspect booked

Posted: Updated:

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A Shreveport man facing an animal cruelty charge has turned himself in to Caddo Parish authorities in connection with the alleged abuse of a puppy dubbed "Braveheart."

The pit bull pup was found - starving and near death - in a storage unit Sept. 11.

Braveheart is now 4 months old and has been given a clean bill of health. He has been adopted by a Shreveport family.

Thirty-one-year-old Gabriel Lee of Shreveport was booked Friday on one count of aggravated cruelty to animals. His bond was set at $5,000.
