According to Friday's New York Daily News, "Bruno," the Rottweiler who was the final dog left at the Mitchel Field Emergency Pet Shelter following Hurricane Sandy, has a new home.
The details of Bruno's adoption are to be released on Saturday at a special press conference which will be held at the Nassau County Emergency Pet Shelter, in Garden City, N.Y.
The seven-year-old dog survived the massive October storm, and the intent for months was for him to be permanently reunited with his guardian, "Christopher," but the hardships that followed the devastating storm made that impossible.
Christopher lost his home, and his job after the hurricane, and for a short time, he was forced to live out of his car.
According to the Nassau County SPCA, the man's decision to surrender Bruno was extremely difficult, but he wanted to do what was best for his companion.
According to Nassau County SPCA spokesman Gary Rogers, on the day that Christopher said his final good-bye to Bruno, he “sat on the floor and cried."
The emotional farewell left Bruno distraught as well, the dog was said to be "howling," when Christopher walked away.
The emergency pet shelter is now closed and all of the displaced animals have either been reunited with their families, or adopted to new families.
