A dog who suffered abuse will get a fresh start Wednesday.

A Shepherd-Terrier named Isis was put up for adoption after she was abandoned by her owner last year and later beaten by teens in the East Garfield Park neighborhood.

Bloody paw prints led authorities to Isis in December in a basement of the owner's apartment.

The woman who owned Isis admitted she let the dog run free after finding out she was not allowed to have pets in her new home.

The woman was charged with animal cruelty and animal neglect.

Isis will now get a new home, and Animal Care and Control turned the pup over Wednesday morning to her new owner, Jeanne Bonk of Beverly.

"She needs a lot of love," Bonk said. "She was very high strung and has serious trust issues, but she's really, really loving and she's really energetic."
