Dog finds loving forever home after video of her abuse goes viral

Addison was Greg Digieso's foster dog before she was adopted by what he believed to be a good family


Addison the dog didn't just find her forever home, she is returning home!

Greg Digieso's fostered Addi and her four puppies for eight months. Over their time together, Digieso and Addi's bond grew and she became one of the family.


“To see a dog that’s just happy, you know?” Digieso said. “She’s just full of smiles, full of tail wags. There’s not a mean bone in this dog’s body.”

Digieso took in one of Addi's puppies, but Addi was adopted by another family.

Then, a video went viral of a pet owner beating their dog. It was Addi.

Boynton Beach police in Florida said the video showed Addison’s owner punching her repeatedly in a public park.

Investigators figured out Digieso was Addi's original foster dad and reached out.

“Broke my heart,” he said.

Afterward, Addi's abusive owner relinquished custody of her. Together, Digieso and authorities checked Addi's medical records and ensured she was healthy and unharmed.

Now, Addi has finally found a safe and loving forever home. Watch the video to find out who adopted Addi! She is full of smiles and cute as can be.
