Not only is Amanda Bynes doing well after recently being released from a mental health treatment facility, but the dog that she soaked in gasoline over the summer is also apparently doing much better.

Bynes was released from an exclusive Malibu mental institution earlier this month and is now living at her parents' home in Los Angeles, and considering enrolling into a fashion school in California.

However, back in July, the actress' pint-sized Pomeranian almost ended up as a casualty after she started makeshift fire in a stranger's driveway located in her parents' neighborhood. Video footage shows that the 27-year-old star walked into a California liquor store shortly after she supposedly lit a small fire in a driveway and reeked of gasoline as she tried to rinse her pet pooch in a back-office sink.

"She was trying to wash the dog. She didn't ask permission to go in the back on her own," Southwest Market & Deli employee Tony Darghali told the New York Daily News.

"When [the clerk on duty] went back there to see what she was doing, he could smell gasoline. She seemed freaked out and just kind of walked out. I don't think there was a whole lot of communication," he added. "It looks like the poor girl needs some help."

Surveillance video published by TMZ shows the former child star wearing a long blond wig as she paces around the store with the tiny dog in her arms and walks into an employees-only bathroom.

Inside sources told TMZ that the pet, whose name is Sherbert, was taken away from Amanda after she was placed on a 5150 psychiatric.

While she was in rehab, insiders say Amanda's parents cared for Sherbert, but have since given him away to a family friend because he didn't get along with the Bynes family's other dogs.
