MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) shared some good news Thursday, about the dog from Green Bay found tied to a fire hydrant with a note from her former owner.
As of Thursday, "Baby Girl" has officially found a new home!
Earlier in the week, the humane society announced that Baby Girl would soon be available for adoption. They said they were looking for someone who would be able to support her medical costs after discovering she has canine diabetes.
WHS says a few people were waiting to meet Baby Girl right away when they opened on Thursday, the very first day she was listed as available.

WHS says they've been in contact with the previous owner who "expressed her gratitude and happiness knowing that 'Baby Girl' would be finding her next loving home soon." They say Baby Girl is expected to be available for adoption at the Green Bay Campus before this weekend, but she'll need a family who can support costly medical needs.
A team of veterinarians determined that Baby Girl has Diabetes mellitus (canine diabetes), and her future adopter will need to work with their vet on a plan which will likely include daily glucose monitoring, a restricted diet and at-home insulin injections. The humane society says this can be an expensive disease to manage, but they're hopeful that the right person is out there to meet her needs.
They went on to describe Baby Girl as a "wonderful goofball with a heart of gold" who's affectionate, energetic and would do best in a home without cats or small animals.

Once she's listed, you can stop into the WHS Green Bay Campus during adoption hours. They say the adoption process is first-come, first-served as long as it's a good fit.
