Holiday story for Zeus the pit bull, a home found him

The Examiner/Bay City News, "Zeus the pit bull finds home after two years at San Mateo County SPCA, 12/24/14. 

"A dog sheltered at the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA for more than two years went home with a Hayward couple Sunday, the organization’s officials have announced.

Claire Karoly Ard and Criss Ard took home a pit bull named Zeus after looking for a dog to adopt for more than a year. The Ard’s have a resident cat and wanted to be sure the dog they adopted would be a good match, according to humane society officials. The humane society recently learned that Zeus was good with cats.

.... Zeus waited longer than any other dog to be adopted since the PHS & SPCA opened the Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion in 2011, according to society officials. On average, dogs were getting adopted from the PHS & SPCA three weeks after being made available for adoption. Zeus came into the care of the society in September 2012. His age and breed contributed to his long wait, society officials said."   Read more.
