The Ingham County Animal Control & Shelter tells us that "Skinny Minnie," the dog found at Hawk Island Park in a badly emaciated state, is now over 78 pounds, and continues to recover with her foster family.

Vets continue to work with Minnie for some lingering digestive issues, and they estimate that Minnie is approximately four years old. The investigation to find the person or persons responsible for her condition is ongoing. The shelter has received numerous tips, but no arrests have been made as of yet.
