Remember the East Village pit-bull that was shot by a police officer after his owner collapsed last August?

The dog, Star, is finally up for adoption.

Star has spent the last few months in Pennsylvania recovering from the incident. Now, the National Greyhound Adoption Program has posted her adoption profile on its website.


Star’s name, though, has now been changed to Shiloh. The Local East Village reports that the name change could be a reference to the children’s novel about a dog that is rescued from violence.

According to the National Greyhound Adoption Program, the pit-bull recovered her “wonderful disposition” and her health has improved “significantly.” However, many of her sense are still hindered due to her injuries. For example, she has “significant vision loss in her right eye,” but she can see up to 15 feet away. She also lost her left eye completely in surgery
