A Long Island dog left homeless after Sandy is homeless no longer.

Bruno has been adopted by a couple in Melville whose two dogs recently died due to illness and old age, according to Newsday.

The Rottweiler's owner lost his home in Long Beach during the storm and was unable to care for him.

Bruno was the last remaining dog at an emergency shelter for Long Island pets left homeless by Sandy.

The shelter closed earlier this month and Bruno was moved to Northwind Kennels in Bedford, in Westchester County.

The kennel's owner, Penny Smith-Berk, said hundreds of people emailed offering to adopt Bruno.

A total of 515 pets were housed in the emergency shelter in the weeks and months after Sandy.
