Queen, the famous Kansas shelter dog, gets adopted

U.S. & World

MERRIAM, Kansas (CNN) — A Kansas shelter dog who stole hearts across the country when her story went viral has finally found a forever home.

Queen, a three-year-old terrier mix, was living at the Great Plains SPCA in Merriam.

She went more than 400 days without being adopted.

That all changed Tuesday, when she was adopted by a man whose friend sent him a picture of the pup.

Tony Peluso said when he went to visit Queen, he fell in love immediately.

Peluso didn’t even know about the viral campaign to find her a home, which included an animal advocate moving into Queen’s kennel last week to raise awareness.

The activist, Scott Poore, documented his time living in the 10-by-7 foot room with Queen and posted videos to Facebook, some of which can be seen below.
