Leigh Sockalosky, above left, of the Hardee Animal Rescue Team holds a dog she calls Hope, a Shar-Pei mix that was severely burned March 20 in Arcadia, as veterinary surgeon Helga Bleyaert finishes a daily bandage change Tuesday at Blue Pearl veterinary hospital in Tampa. Sockalosky, who works in a vet's office in Hardee County, makes a 180-mile round trip to see Hope every day. Hope's owner Larry Wallace, 66, left, was taken into custody Monday, accused of setting his dog on fire. He faces felony charges of arson and animal abuse.
