A young dog who made headlines earlier this month when she was found taped in a box left inside a port-a-potty at a Brookline construction site has been adopted, according to the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or MSPCA.

Crowned Princess Loo, the 22-pound Corgi mix was adopted by a woman named Donna, who asked that her last name not be published.

Donna left the shelter with 5-year-old Loo Monday afternoon to begin her new life. 

Loo spent 11 days in the care of the MSPCA-Angell’s Boston adoption center. Donna, who lives in western Massachusetts, was one of several hundred people who applied to adopt Loo.


Donna was chosen because “her quiet home was exactly the kind in which the team felt Loo would thrive,” according to a statement from the MSPCA.

Brookline police said officers found Loo around 10 p.m. on Dec. 9. Though she had been taped inside a box for an O-Cedar EasyWring mop and bucket, the dog managed to free her head and two front legs, according to officials.

Police said the dog was unharmed but frightened. She was not wearing a collar or identification tags, nor was she microchipped.

Anyone who has any information about Loo is urged to call the Brookline Police Department’s tip line at 617-730-2730 or the MSPCA’s Law Enforcement Department at 800-522-6008.
