The highway dog hits the road again.
He survived rush-hour traffic, now it’s time for a new adventure.
Ike, the stray dog who captivated audiences with two days worth of activity on the Eisenhower Expressway, has been moved to a new temporary home. The Chicago charity Precious Pets Almost Home placed the rush-hour pooch with a foster family until a permanent one can be found.
"I'll take him home at minimum for a couple of weeks so I can evaluate him," Steve Zorn, with Precious Pets Almost Home, said. "What we want is a permanent home. We want the next home for Eisenhower to be a loving one."
The young pit bull spent a week recovering at the Hillchester Hospital for Animals in Hillside.
"He's going to get some rest and relaxation this week," Zorn said.
