TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - UPDATE: After nearly 140 days at the Toledo Humane Society, Dorito has found a “fur-ever” home!

THS posted the update on their Facebook page Tuesday afternoon, thanking Dorito’s adopter and calling the duo a fantastic match. The adopter received multiple phone calls telling him to visit the center to see Dorito.

“We couldn’t save lives without the support and dedication of our incredible community and for getting the word out about the animals in our care,” THS said in the post. “It is thanks to all of you passionate people that Dorito did not spend day 140 sitting her kennel.”

The shelter said while Dorito is no longer in their care, there are many animals at THS that could use your time and attention, encouraging the public to visit.

Ladies and gentlemen, Dorito has left the building! 💜🐾🥳 Of course a huge thank you is in order for Dorito’s adopter -...

Take one look at her eyes, and it defies logic how Dorito is still available for adoption at the Toledo Humane Society.

But according to a Facebook post, it’s been quite a chore to find the right family for the 2-year-old dog. The Humane Society said its made 11 Facebook posts and four Instagram posts for Dorito when a normal animal will be featured once or twice before they’re adopted.

Dorito has been at the Humane Society for 139 days. The post said Dorito would not do well in a home with a cat or a small animal. They also suggest Dorito go to a home with older children so that there’s no risk of knocking over little children.

“But there HAS to be a dog lover out there who doesn’t have these restrictions holding them back from meeting her, right,” the Facebook post asked.

UPDATE: Dorito has been adopted! Thank you to our animal-loving community for all of your help in getting the word out...

Throughout Dorito’s long stay at the Toledo Humane Society, volunteers said her original problem with other dogs has gotten better, to where she’s “more open to positive interactions with other dogs.”

The Toledo Humane Society is open 12-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 12-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
