Wiggles the dog finally gets adopted after 11 years in a shelter

After 11 years in an Illinois shelter, Wiggles the dog is wiggling her way into a forever home.

The 14-year-old pooch has been living at the 5A’s Animal Shelter in Godfrey since 2010, according to WZZM. The news outlet says Wiggles, who suffers from allergies, was brought to the shelter when she was 3 because they could no longer take care of her.

"We would like to get her a real home," they wrote on Facebook.

This week, Wiggles got her wish.

A shelter kennel worker reportedly told Riverbender.com that Wiggles was adopted by a couple who "have a big fenced-in yard and a nice neighborhood. They came in Sunday afternoon. This seems perfect for Wiggles," she said.
