Eisenhower Pooch Finds a Home

Ike enjoys the comforts of suburban life



    Eisenhower Pooch Finds a Home

    The dog that fearlessly faced the Eisenhower Expressway is finally settling down.

    Ike, a 5- to 7-year-old pit bull, was adopted by an empty-nester couple in the suburbs, in a new home complete with his own futon, a feline brother named Harley… and his own Facebook page.

    The Facebook page, which the couple uses to post updates about the dog's new life, already has over 1,000 fans.

    Steve Zorn of Precious Pets Almost Home placed Ike with the couple after sorting through hundreds of e-mails and phone calls expressing interest in the dog.

    Ike caused quite the scene when he backed up highway traffic on the Eisenhower in April. It took traffic helicopters and police cars to catch the little guy. But his truck-dodging days are over, in favor of a much quieter life on a comfy suburban couch.
