Buckeye goes California

Just got word of a happy ending from the tragic Kinsman animal rescue and resulting sticky situation in Trumbull County.

I'm told rescued "Pit bull #100," now known as Buckeye, boarded a plane last Friday at Cleveland International Airport for Oakland, California.

Arranged through the nationally known Bad Rap Pit Bull Rescue, he now has a home with Jamie Allen, humane educator with the Silicon Valley Humane Society.

"Jamie has been looking for a confident dog with lots of personality to replace her teaching dog, Buzz," said Barbara Busko, executive director of the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County.

Congratulations, Buckeye - you've certainly earned it - and to Jamie, we hope he becomes your new best friend.

The remaining 17 dogs from the rescue, which can be seen on the AWL Facebook page, were recently moved to the Canfield boarding kennels until homes can be found.

Donations, adoptions, fosters and rescues can still be made at:
