Joey the pit bull was just three months old when when he was found in a black plastic bag at the closed Pilgrim Psychiatric Center near the Sagtikos Parkway in Brentwood in August.
The Veterinary Medical Center of Long Island received more than 100 applications from people hoping to adopt Joey.
Joey the pit bull has been released from the Veterinary Medical Center of Long Island in West Islip. When the three-month-old puppy was first brought in three weeks ago, he had a broken neck and was in critical condition.
