CHICAGO (WGN) — Elvis has officially left the building!
Anti-Cruelty Society, a Chicago animal shelter and welfare organization, announced the happy news Friday, saying, in part: “His adopters had been waiting for the right time to welcome a dog into their family and once they saw Elvis on the news, they couldn’t deny that it was fate!”
According to the animal shelter’s post, Elvis was adopted by a couple who “is head over heels in love with their new family member.”
“When no one else wanted him, we found him. We’re all a bunch of misfits.”
Ironically, one of his new owners had formerly worked as an Elvis impersonator, and plans to keep the dog’s iconic name.
