- A once abandoned special needs dog who ended up being the last one left in an adoption push event over the weekend, now has a forever home.

A Harbor Springs animal shelter in northern MI was inundated with adoption requests after they posted a picture of the only animal left behind after a statewide "Empty the Shelters" pet adoption day.

The Little Traverse Bay Humane Society says Eastwood was found as a stray, wandering in the cold. "I'm hoping for this to give people the opportunity to consider other animals that need homes just as much as Eastwood [did]". They were all adopted into new homes later that day.

Anyone interested in adopting Eastwood is asked to fill out an application. Eastwood was born with health issues that could have been fixed when he was younger, but they weren't.

"We are determined to find the right fit for this special boy", the human society said in a post. His remaining issue is with one of his rear legs.

The shelter is now processing applications for Eastwood and said they hope to have a family for him soon. He was almost blind, but his sight has improved since he's been at the shelter.

The humane society said it received 70 applications and eventually had to turn people away due to the overwhelming response.

"While he's an awesome and wonderful dog, there's still so many animals that need homes across the country", said Evans.

The applications came from all over. "Never seen this before", Chaney added.

More than 80 applications came in for Eastwood, a disabled dog at the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, after his plight was shared on the organization's Facebook page and made national news.

Animal care officials are now expressing their excitement for Eastwood's future.

Eastwood will have plenty of space to run around and will be surrounded by love.
