    Last month, a 7-year-old pit bull named Tonka found his forever home after almost breaking the record for Orange County Animal Services' longest shelter stay.

    Described as "affectionate, loving and energetic," by members of the central Florida shelter, Tonka was five days short of setting the new record when South Daytona resident Wilfredo Vega adopted the pooch. Vega finally found his forever home after 216 days in the shelter.

    On Nov. 21, shelter officials announced Tonka's adoption in a Facebook statement and posted a photo of the animal beside his new family members. "After 216 days in a shelter this year, we are hopeful this boy will never have to leave the comfort of home again," Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) wrote.
