ASHTABULA, Ohio — A dog who spent 842 days at an Ohio animal shelter was finally adopted on Saturday.
Mia, a three-year old pit bull mix, spent most of her life at the Ashtabula County Animal Protective League.
“(Mia) was so happy to head home with her new mom,” the animal shelter said on social media. “It takes a very special family to give long term dogs a home! We thank you for taking a chance with our Mia.”
The shelter said Mia has a “silly personality” and loves to go on walks.
“(She) does pretty well on a leash after she runs off the initial excitement of going out,” the shelter said.
Mia is not the only pet that spent an extended amount of time at the shelter to be adopted this weekend.
Puffy, a 4-year-old domestic shorthair cat who had been at the shelter for a long time, was also adopted.
