A dog that captured the hearts of Chicagoans after tying up traffic on the Eisenhower Expressway last week is expected to leave the animal hospital soon.

The dog, called Eisenhower by those who have been caring for him, could go home with a foster family as early as Thursday.

The 4-year-old pit bull interrupted traffic on the busy highway during the early morning commute last Wednesday and then again on Thursday. He finally gave in to officials after the second chase and was taken to an animal hospital in Hillside.

Eisenhower was not seriously injured in the expressway incident, but was treated for dehydration. Workers at the animal hospital said the dog has rested up, eaten well and is now playful. All he needs before he heads to a foster family is the final OK from the vet. No valid owner has come forward.

Adoption Information

The foster family, which is part of the Precious Pets Almost Home group in Lemont, will try to adopt Eisenhower out from there. Those who are interested in adopting Eisenhower can email [email protected] The group is also accepting donations to help care for the dog; checks can be sent to Precious Pets Almost Home, P.O.
