Lacy was staying in a shelter in the Houston area after the storm. When the shelter became too crowded, San Antonio Pets Alive took 90 dogs, including Lacy, the television station reported.

The pet shelter’s executive director, Maureen O’Nell, said the dog had been injured during the aftermath of the storm.

“She had numerous scars all over her body. She had probably been in some fights, trying to get resources, trying to get food," O'Nell told KENS. "She was very, very thin. She had infections from her nose to her tail. She was in rough shape.”

O’Nell posted a photograph of Lacy on social media and was contacted by the San Antonio Recovery Center, which was looking for a support animal.

Trish Frye, the center’s director of operations, told KENS that Lacy’s easygoing manner and friendliness was perfect for her facility.

"She's brought a whole new spirit to the San Antonio Recovery Center. She brings them purpose. Clients take on feeding her, giving her a bath, sometimes they even argue over who gets that job," Frye told the television station. "It's so neat to watch them understand that while she has a history, she has a past, and has been treated horribly in her past, that she can turn around and pour out love and pour out understanding and forgive. And they can do the same thing."

  • A family has to bury another loved one after a man was shot during a viewing at a funeral home in Arkansas. Forrest City police said the shooting happened outside a funeral home off South Washington Street on Friday afternoon. Officers said the shooter, Christopher Reed, and victim, Curtis Allen, were cousins and were arguing about a dispute from back in 2014. Allen’s sister said she was outside when the shooting happened. “Your own family would do something so horrific on one of the most horrific days of someone’s life,” said Rozette Allen. Rozette Allen said her family traveled from Illinois to pay respects to their father Friday afternoon. She said Reed and her brother had unresolved issues from the past. She said Reed went up to her brother to shake his hand outside the funeral home but Curtis Allen wanted to be left alone. “He started pulling out a gun from his bookbag, and I’m like, ‘He has a gun, he has a gun,’ and he started shooting,” said Rozette Allen. Benjamin Wynne works at Miles J. Kimble Mortuary and Cremation. He said he was inside when he heard gunshots. “When he went through, ran through the funeral home, I immediately called police,” said Wynne. Police said Reed shot Curtis Allen multiple times. Allen was taken to the hospital and died Sunday. Officers arrested Reed and charged him with first-degree murder, aggravated assault and other charges. Rozette Allen said she will miss her brother, whom she described as a loving father of four kids. “I love him keep watching over us, watch over all of us,” said Allen.
