MANOR, Texas (KXAN) — Annabelle the puppy’s story has a happily ever after ending now that she has been adopted by a new family.

Her previous owner, Chandler Bullen — facing animal cruelty charges for leaving the puppy in a hot car — decided to surrender her to the Austin Animal Center on Wednesday.

Bullen had been accused of leaving Annabelle in his vehicle on June 18 during a trip to Walmart. Temperatures had just hit 100 degrees in the area for the first time this year when witnesses saw Annabelle in the vehicle.

Bullen, 20, was arrested and Annabelle was taken to the Austin Animal Center by Manor police. On June 22, a judge ordered the puppy to be returned to Bullen if he paid a fee of around $200 and returned to court in 30 days with proof he had taken her to a vet.

He chose not to do this and the Manor Police Department said Annabelle would become available for adoption.
