Greensboro, NC -- You could call her the most famous dog in the Triad, and maybe North Carolina. Susie, a dog that was found burned and abused in a Greensboro park in 2009, continues to use her experience to educate.
Her latest adventure to support abused animals and educate the public, is a plush toy made in her likeness. The toy features some of the same injuries Susie suffered, which her owner Donna Lawrence hopes will help teach kids about animal cruelty.
Toys and Company in Friendly Center is selling the toys for $19.95. Some of the proceeds will go to support "Susie's Hope", a charity that's fighting animal abuse.
In addition to the dolls, there are three books based on Susie's abuse already published and a movie coming out soon.
