Martin Sprouse with 'Grady', an Airedale Terrier-Irish Wolfhound mix, Thursday, April 18, 2013, in Oakland, Calif. After his owner brought the dog to the Kauai Humane Society because he was moving, the dog with the big brown eyes languished for four months, said shelter operations manager Brandy Varvel. But now Grady is living in a spacious California loft with a new owner who is admittedly smitten thanks to an arrangement the Kauai Humane Society has with the East Bay SPCA in Oakland. The Kauai Humane Society has been reaching out since December to Hawaii tourists willing to bring a little extra baggage, one of the island’s many strays and abandoned dogs, when returning to the Bay Area. The dogs are mostly mixed breeds derived from Airedales, whippets and hounds; breeds which are used in the Hawaii Islands to hunt feral pigs. (AP Photo/Ben Margot) less
