FARGO, N.D. -

It's a great ending...and a new beginning for the tale of Squirtle!

4 Luv of Dog Rescue reports on their Facebook page a family has grown by four paws and has given Squirtle his forever home.

The pet rescue featured Squirtle on KVRR Local News' morning show.

He needed to find a family due to life-threatening medical issues.

Squirtle may not have much time left, but he will be with a loving family to help him through his final days.

Thank you to his adoptive family and congratulations on your new best friend!
