A dog found with its muzzle duct-taped tightly shut earlier this year in North Charleston, South Carolina, has been honored by People Magazine as the “Best Survival Story” of 2015 in its special end-of-year pets awards section.
Named Caitlyn by the volunteers who saved her, the dog (pictured below both before and after the incident) has made a miraculous and inspiring recovery, according to the Charleston Animal Society.
The Charleston Animal Society announced on its Facebook page that Caitlyn will be featured in a full-page photo spread in People Magazine's Dec. 21 issue.
The magazine previously ran a story on Caitlyn's recovery progress in its June 19 issue, less than a month after she was first rescued.
She has been placed in a foster home and is adjusting well to life as a loved family pet, the animal shelter said.
