NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — His smiling face was featured on pizza boxes all over the country, but Hooch, a Mastiff in residence at the Niagara County SPCA, captured the hearts and attention of a couple right here in WNY.

Hooch needed to go to a home with no other pets or children and to someone with experience in taking care of large breeds, so finding him a home was a challenge. A couple came to the shelter Saturday asking to foster the five-year-old gentle giant.

His foster family reports the big guy is settling in nicely and has already taken over the couch, the bed and their hearts.
