GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Police say a Grand Rapids woman who claimed to find an eight week old puppy in a garbage can, made up the story.

WZZM 13 reported about McKenzie Coleman two weeks ago. She says she found Foxy crying in a trash can and took care of her for a week before calling animal control.

The dog had an injured right eye and had to undergo surgery. There is now a list of people waiting to adopt her.

Police say there was no criminal intent, and Coleman just made a mistake. It's not clear as to why she made up the story or where the dog came from originally.

No charges will be filed.
