CORAM - A dog found abandoned in Suffolk County has made an amazing comeback, according rescue workers.

The 10-year-old dog named Queenie was found emaciated inside a Coram apartment and weighed only 47 pounds.

Rescue workers at Grady Animal Hospital say Queenie is improving every day.

Queenie will go to a new loving home once she's able to leave the hospital.

Meanwhile, the dog's owner, Michael Faulkner, 26, is facing animal cruelty charges.
