The dog who survived a mile-long run along busy train tracks has a new home.

Last week, two police officers rescued Tie, coaxing her off the tracks at the 125th Street Metro-North Station in Manhattan.

The MTA says she had traveled on or near the railways starting in the Bronx.

One conductor had to slow down while Tie ran along the tracks ahead of his train.

Now, she's with her new family.

Animal Care and Control organized Tie's adoption.

They say they had more than 100 inquiries about the lucky pup.

The organization says it has dozens of dogs and other animals waiting to be adopted.
