Gina DeJesus endured unimaginable horror as Ariel Castro’s captive for 10 years. But there was one bright spot: her relationship with Castro’s dog, a terrier mix named Lola.
And now, freed from her torment, DeJesus has adopted the dog.
Castro owned three dogs in his Cleveland home, according to the Daily Mail: a five-year-old Chihuahua named Dina, a three-year-old Shih Tzu mix named Drake, and three-year-old Lola the terrier mix. Castro reportedly let his captives interact with the dogs, but he would take the dogs away as punishment.
