This is Cassie. Cassie has been looking for a home for a long, long time. After spending 525 days in an Ohio animal shelter, it looks like she may have found it..

“BEST NEWS OF THE DAY!” the Humane Society of Great Dayton wrote on its Facebook page last week. “Every day for 525 days she has patiently waited for that perfect person to walk through the doors and pick her, and today was her day!”

Cassie first arrived at the shelter on Aug. 9, 2017. She has been adopted before, but returned after families realized she would be “happiest in a home without cats or small children,” the Dayton Daily News reported.

While living at the shelter, the hound-shepherd mix attended the START training program where she learned basic commands. Her new owner saw her when she appeared in a local TV commerical.

“Our staff may have shed a few tears saying goodbye and there may have been a few squeals of excitement, but we are so very happy for Cassie and her new family!” the shelter wrote.
