DeJesus Reunited with Dog From Castro Home

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Gina DeJesus has been reunited with one of the dogs that were removed from Ariel Castro’s Seymour Avenue home.

DeJesus was found earlier this month along with Amanda Berry, Berry’s daughter and Michelle Knight after being held captive nearly 10 years in Castro’s home.

Castro is in jail, and faces several charges in the case.

Fox 8 News is told Gina formed a bond with the terrier mix named Lola, and an attorney representing her asked for help in reuniting the pair.

Friday, the attorney picked up Lola from the Cleveland Kennel on Gina’s behalf.

Two other dogs were rescued from the home. One is a chihuahua named Dina. She weighs seven pounds and is thought to be about five years old.

The other dog is Drake, a Shih Tzu mix who weighs about 14 pounds and is about three years old.

Both will be up for adoption in about two weeks. For more information on the rescue group of the dogs, click here.
