Happy tale: Tie, the train-racing pup, gets a home

NEW YORK - The dog that raced a New York commuter train has a new family.

New York's Animal Care & Control announced Monday that Tie has found a new home.

The agency got about 100 queries and three dozen applications for the energetic pooch. She's believed to be a shepherd-collie mix.

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 says Tie was running "like she didn't have a care in the world."

The transit authority says passengers applauded as Tie walked into the arms of police officers at a station in Manhattan.

The animal care agency notes it still has lots of deserving dogs, cats and rabbits in need of homes.
