The charming American bulldog mix finally met the family he'd been waiting for all along.

Everyone at the shelter says Guapo never lost his loving spirit -- and was "a constant source of tail wags and gentle kisses during the height of the coronavirus pandemic."

The staff says it was "all smiles" as they bid farewell to their sweet prince, but he is one of many pets who have been waiting longer than most to find their new homes.
