On May 10, the humane society said she would be up for adoption soon. When she became available on Thursday, there were "a few folks" already waiting when the building opened.

Baby Girl was found with a note that indicated her owner had serious medical issues. On Tuesday, the humane society said it got in contact with the owner and discussed how to further care for the dog.

A family that could support Baby Girl's costly medical needs was a must, the humane society said; she has canine diabetes.

Anyone in a position to adopt should check the Wisconsin Humane Society's website daily.
