    DETROIT - UPDATE! The Little Traverse Bay Humane Society says Eastwood has found a home:

    Eastwood has been ADOPTED!! After careful thought and consideration, we are thrilled to announce that
    Eastwood now has a forever home! This was a VERY difficult decision. We reviewed over 80 adoption applications today, and while there were countless families who would have given Eastwood an amazing home, one stood out above the rest...

    DETROIT - The dog who was the only one left at a Michigan animal shelter after pet adoption day last month has finally met his new family.

    Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy saw the story about Eastwood, a 1-year-old special needs pup, who was the last dog standing at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society.

    The coach and his family stepped in to give Eastwood a forever home.

    The Van Gundy family picked up their new family member Tuesday morning...

    I am intentionally avoiding all WS politivent forums today (and for the foreseeable future) so this was the absolute perfect first thread for me to see when I popped on today! BDE you are simply the best! I have shared this little story with all my doggy people - each adoption story is pretty wonderful, and this one is right up there. Thank you for sharing this positivity!

    I wonder if he got any help from Riley Sheahan.

    Riley’s Rescues Program

    Yes, as a matter of fact I will use almost any excuse to talk about the Red Wings. Plus there's cute doggies!

    Great job Stan!
