GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCIV) -- The health of a dog dumped in a Georgetown canal in July is improving.

Dara, a black Lab, is now in the care of the St. Frances Animal Center. The executive director there said Friday the dog's wounds have healed and she has gained more than 20 pounds.

Dara is even on a diet now. Employees at the animal center said they think she might have been sneaking into offices and stealing workers' lunches.
