There is exciting news to share about Ace, the blind and deaf pit bull who was rescued from a busy highway in Long Island, N.Y., months ago.

After six (plus) long months of being without a home, the year-and-a-half old dog, who has been described as "perfect" and "flawless" has a family of his own. On Saturday, the Facebook page 'Desperate Dogs of Long Island' posted the heartwarming update to their followers:

Happy Tails, Ace, you are finally home!!!! Many thanks to everyone who shared and made it happen, to Penny Preston Eims for her articles in the Examiner, and to Cesar Millan for featuring Ace on his "Adopt me Thursday" page - thanks to all of you, Ace has his miracle!!!!

Prior to being adopted, Ace had been waiting for that miracle behind the bars of a kennel run at the Brookhaven Shelter. Not one, but two articles were written about Ace and though he had several inquiries, up until his recent adoption, they had all fallen through.

Shortly after the update about Ace's adoption was posted to the Desperate Dogs of Long Island Facebook page, Ace's new family wrote:

We're so grateful that we saw your post on Desperate Dogs! You are all such amazing people, I've had the pleasure of seeing and hearing about how hard you work to save these dogs and it's really inspiring. You are truly beautiful people, if I lived in NY I'd love to work with you. Keep up the hard work, you're making miracles happen!!

The comments following the wonderful update have all been positive - many people have stated that they are "in tears" and "so happy" to hear the news.
