Last Dog Left In MI Shelter Scores Great New Home

You may have read and worried about Eastwood in Shelter; he was the only dog left at the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society after their “Empty The Shelters” event a few weeks ago.

Well, we’re happy to tell you that Eastwood has a new home, and you might recognize their name.  It’s Stan Van Gundy, Coach of the Detroit Pistons – and he’s already fitting right in with the rest of their two-and-four-footed family!  Check out the meet-n-greet video on the shelter’s website!

After the shelter told their followers about the plight of one-year-old Eastwood, who had been abandoned, had a deformity in his leg and some vision problems, they were flooded with applications for the mixed breed.

Coach Van Gundy believes it was destiny that lead their family to find out about Eastwood.

“We had just lost a 14-year-old dog… had just passed away in March so my wife Kim thought it was basically destiny.” 

Eastwood and his new family!

Eastwood will share his new home with one dog and six cat siblings.  The Van Gundy’s live on a lake so he’ll also get a chance to swim and go out on the boat with his new family.  And he’ll be furever loved.

Says the Coach, “There’s fantastic animals at every shelter – everywhere. And that’s where people should be going out and looking for pets.”  Van Gundy shoots… and scores!
