Police officer Stephanie Northcutt was among those who responded, managing to gain the trust of the Doberman and remained committed to his care during the entire rescue process.

The South Bend Police later announced via their social media that Zeus, the name given to the Doberman, was adopted by Northcutt, the officer who played a pivotal role in his rescue.

Zeus marks the second dog that Northcutt has saved from adverse conditions while on duty. Moved by the impact of Zeus’s story on the community, Northcutt intends to fund two pet adoptions at the South Bend Animal Resource Center. The investigation into the circumstances of Zeus’s predicament, including the use of the zip-tie, is ongoing by the police.

The South Bend Animal Resource Center (SBARC) has indicated that Zeus is expected to recover fully from his ordeal without any lasting physical harm and has been thriving in his new environment.
