OKLAHOMA CITY - Former Dallas Cowboys and University of Oklahoma head coach Barry Switzer has found a new home for a dog he rescued Wednesday.
Switzer was walking into a store when he saw a Rottweiler puppy locked in a car.
"I noticed that it was a beautiful dog and I saw it was a puppy," Switzer said.
He waited for the owner to come out and convinced them to let him buy her. He then took her straight to the vet.
"I told the doc I want rabies shots, check for worms, everything," Switzer said. "They even clipped the toenails so it was a pedicure for her. She went to the spa."
He named the dog Stella but knew he wasn't going to keep her because he says he already has a pack of dogs.
Coach hand picked Stella's new owners -- a couple from Moore who lost their home in the May tornado.
