Rod Goodhue of Blanchard's Pit Bull Rescue took possession of "Butter" Monday afternoon. Goodhue says he will work with "Butter" for the next several months to rehabilitate the dog.

"Right now he's got a lot of stress issues, but not anger at all. He's just a really sweet dog," said Goodhue. "He's had more people pulling for him than anybody, a lot of people, including the Edmond Shelter, police and the D.A.'s office should be given credit for saving this dog."
