OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Royce has a new home tonight. The Italian Spinone dog has arrived on the Coast after a journey that lasted several days and more than 5800 miles.

Volunteers from the organization called tired dog rescue heard about Royce's plight and wanted to bring him to the United States.

Royce was discovered homeless and malnourished in Serbia. One of the members of the group is originally from Serbia and heard about the dog.

That's when the wheels were set in motion to bring him to this country. Volunteers gathered on the beach in Ocean Springs today to greet Royce and take snapshots.

Judging from the dog's reaction, he was certainly happy to have found a new home.

Royce will be placed in a foster home before he is permanently adopted. And by the way, he is very good around children.

Just another success story for Tired Dog Rescue.
