Elvis, a charming 3-year-old dog often likened to a lovable hound, was on the quest for his forever home. After spending 132 days in a Chicago shelter, his moment finally arrived. On November 11, at The Anti-Cruelty Society’s adoption event, Elvis joined numerous cats and dogs, all hoping to find a loving family.
As the event concluded, every furry friend found a home, except for Elvis.
The shelter made a plea for assistance, and it didn’t take long for Elvis to win the hearts of people across the nation. In just under a week, he found his way home with the perfect family.
Loren and Drew, a local couple, became Elvis’s new companions after his four-month stay at the shelter. The match was especially fitting, considering Loren’s past experience as an Elvis impersonator.
In the shelter’s last update on Elvis, they shared, “This couple is absolutely smitten with their new family member and has already set up a cozy dog bed and a heap of toys, eagerly awaiting him in his forever home.”
“When nobody else stepped up, we did. We’re just a bunch of misfits,” shared Drew.
The Anti-Cruelty Society (ACS) explained that Elvis ended up at the shelter as a stray. During a checkup, it was discovered that he wasn’t putting any weight on his back leg. Further investigation through X-rays revealed a fractured pelvis.
Fortunately, Elvis’s fracture healed by the time Loren and Drew welcomed him into their home.
