Owners of Kirby & Quigley welcome new puppy

FLORIDA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A family whose tragedy sparked a push for animal cruelty laws is now the proud owners of a new dog.

Denise Krohn shared pictures with NEWS10 ABC of their new puppy named Porter.

Krohn and her husband drove all the way down to South Carolina over the weekend to pick up the puppy.

This after their two dogs Kirby and Quigley were shot and killed during a home burglary in February.

“Kirby and Quigley’s law named after the dogs, gained a lot of support in the legislature, but is unlikely to pass this session.

Krohn has been a strong advocate of the law, which would increase penalties for people who harm animals while committing other crimes.
