Since the dogs' names were initially unknown, they were given nicknames by NHVS-Katy staff. Judy Brown, a 2-year-old boxer mix, was dubbed "Faith" and Lucy, an 8-year-old dachshund, was given the name "Hope." Suzanne Merritt, assistant manager at NHVS-Katy, told The Dodo that, in this case, the names "Hope" and "Faith" are actually quite special. Coincidentally, the Futrells had a family member named Hope, and Faith happened to be the late Yolanda's nickname. Eerily, the NHVS-Katy staff didn't discover this information until after the pups had been given their new names.
"Judy Brown is doing very well," Merritt said. "She suffered severe wounds on both front legs and minor lacerations on the body. She has recovered well, was released from the hospital, and is undergoing frequent bandage changes in the treatment of her leg wounds."
Judy Brown is currently being cared for by extended family members while her owner recuperates. Merritt said that, according to Judy Brown's family, she's been over to visit Charles several times.
