    Chihuahua That Led Officers on Bay Bridge Chase Finds Forever Home

    Ponch, the stray Chihuahua who captured hearts around the nation after he sprinted across the Bay Bridge, finally found a home.

    After being rescued by California Highway Patrol, Ponch went to stay with a foster family connected to San Francisco County's animal services department. His caretakers waited several weeks to see if someone would come forward and claim ownership – Ponch had a collar with a skull dangling from it when he was captured – but no one stepped up.

    Instead, offers from animal lovers all over the world came flooding in, asking if it would be possible to give the 10-pound Chihuahua a new home. Animal Care and Control conducted several interviews, according to the department, before finally settling on a suitable family for Ponch. He is scheduled to go home Thursday, after his rescuers have a chance to bid him farewell.

    “Taking into consideration that Ponch is a nervous fellow who loves to run, his new home and family are perfectly suited to give him the happily-ever-after life,” Animal Care and Control said in a statement. The family who is adopting him wishes to remain anonymous.

    Such a cute dog, but at 10 lbs, he's definitely a chi mix.
