Officials: Dog found behind Soundview Dumpster recovering

Officials say a starving dog found behind a Dumpster in Soundview is on the road to recovery just three weeks later.

A Good Samaritan found 1-year-old Ella near Close Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard.

Rescuers say the pit-bull mix was close to starvation before she was found. They say since her rescue, Ella has been getting stronger every day and in about three weeks, she should be ready for adoption.
