THE BRONX -

A viewer has adopted a dog featured on News 12’s Furry Friends Friday segment.

Linda Jelicks adopted Hailey after watching News 12 and seeing the dog was in need of a new home.

"She's been adjusting to life in our home and loves to go out for a morning walk," Jelicks says.

Jelicks adopted Hailey from New Beginning Animal Rescue in the Bronx.

She says her previous dog died in July, and she knew the moment she saw Hailey that her family would give her all the love she needed.

"We met her, and she came running right over to us. I knew we couldn't look at any other dogs," Jelick says.

She says the best thing about having Hailey is the life they're creating together.

"We've fallen in love with her, and she seems to have adjusted well to us," she says.
