Relatives of an 89-year-old woman who was the first person in Indiana to die from the multi-state fungal meningitis outbreak say her pet dog has a new home.
An Indianapolis couple recently adopted Lucky, the poodle mix that had been the beloved pet of Pauline Burema of Cassopolis.
Burema died October 10th at her family's Bristol home after receiving a tainted back pain injection at an Elkhart clinic.
Her granddaughter-in-law says she and her husband had tried to care for Lucky, but that their home was too noisy and hectic for him.
Saying goodbye to Lucky was "dreadful, but for the best."
