Remember Pistachio the dog who has lymphoma and spent the past two months at the Cuyahoga Animal Shelter? His furever family has finally found him! 

Pistachio had been at the shelter since early August. 

He had an inguinal hernia, which was removed during surgery. A veterinarian noticed another mass during the procedure, which was removed and a biopsy was performed. The biopsy showed that Pistachio had lymphoma.

Even though he spent two months at the shelter, he had the opportunity to meet Snoop Dogg and be on the Hallmark Channel.

He was finally adopted on Thursday! 


Congratulations Pistachio! We are so happy for you!
