Whatever happened to the dog stabbed in October in Toledo?

Anthony Banks was stabbed to death in a robbery last year. His dog Baby Girl was also stabbed and nearly died. But that’s not the end of the story.

TOLEDO, Ohio – It’s a small ray of hope at the end of a tragic story.

October 19th last year. Anthony Banks, aged 60, was murdered in central Toledo.

Banks had been stabbed at least once and was still dying on the scene, along with his dog Baby Girl, who was also stabbed and nearly died.

Although the detectives failed to save Banks’ life, Baby Girl was quickly rushed to MedVet Toledo, where immediate treatment could keep her alive.

But that wasn’t the end of the story for Baby Girl.

During the investigation into Banks’ murder, senior detective Mooney of the Toledo Police Department made investigating the recovering dog a priority and appears to have made a connection.

During this time, Mooney was able to issue and arrest a warrant for the murder of Banks and stabbing Baby Girl.

Anne Hair, also known as Anne Green, was arrested in Tennessee in November.

Detectives say Hair stabbed Banks and Baby Girl in a robbery.

Meanwhile, with the help of the Lucas County Pit Crew and time in a nursing home, Baby Girl continued to heal while she was examined by Detective Mooney.

On May 7th, over half a year after the tragic night in which her owner lost her life and almost took her own, Baby Girl was adopted by none other than Detective Mooney and her family.
