‘Special Needs Dog’ Finds Forever Home After Being Last Left In Shelter

An annual adoption event in Michigan helped 2,500 dogs find a home, but at the end of the event, just one dog remained at the shelter without a family.

According to Jennifer Earl of CBS News, Eastwood, a one-year-old Labrador Retriever, was left all by himself in the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society shelter.

The Golden Lab was born with a leg defect and specialists believe it will need surgery down the road. That was enough for families to not take a chance on Eastwood.

With all of Eastwood’s friends gone from the shelter, Little Traverse Bay Humane Society took to social media to find a good home for the “special needs dog.”

After 1,800 shares through social media, the shelter received 80 applications to adopt Eastwood. On Monday, he gets to go home with his new family in Detroit.

“Everybody wanted him. He’s just sweet as can be,” said┬áJessica Evans, communications and marketing coordinator for Little Traverse Bay Humane Society. “He’s just a friendly, lovable, playful dog that’s good with other dogs. He’s good with cats and children, amazing with children. He’s just an all-around great dog that everybody wants in their home.”
