Dog that raced train finds new home

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- The adorable dog that raced a Metro-North train has a new family.  New York's Animal Care & Control announced Monday that Tie has found a "great" new home.

AC&C got about 100 queries and three dozen applications for the energetic pooch.

She was rescued last week after running alongside a Metro-North Railroad train on a parallel track.

About half a dozen trains had to slow down.

Engineer Joseph Delia said Tie was running "like she didn't have a care in the world."

The MTA said passengers applauded as Tie walked into the arms of police officers at the 125th Street station in Manhattan.

She's believed to be a shepherd-collie mix.

AC&C noted that it still has lots of deserving dogs, cats and rabbits in need of homes.

    A man dressed as Spider-Man was arraigned on charges he punched a police officer who told him to stop harassing tourists in Time Square. Junior Bishop, 25, faces charges of assault, criminal mischief, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Police say the officer interceded after Bishop demanded at least $5 from a woman he posed for a picture with, instead of the $1 she offered.
