Thalia Perez and her husband adopted one of the puppies Thursday found abandoned in a ditch.
They renamed her Ellie Mae because she was born in May.
Thalia is from Jacksonville and she's in the Army. She just completed basic training and they're moving to Ft. Bragg.
Ellie Mae was spayed for free at the Humane Society today.
She fell in love with Ella Mae one of 8 puppies found in the ditch.
One of the puppies, Espresso, is still available for adoption. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The adoption fee is $20 dollars to the Jax Humane Society.
