DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – You could say Alexander the Great is as powerful a warrior as his name implies.

Alexander III of Macedon, better known as Alexander the Great, was undefeated in battle and is considered one the most successful commanders in history.

Now, consider the four legged Alexander the Great, a dog left for dead in Dayton who battled back and now has a new family to call his own.

Philip Drescher saw the pit bull on the Humane Society’s web site and immediately fell in love.

“It was destiny. We hung out. I’m glad they took him in to save him,” said Drescher. “I want to give him a chance.”

Drescher believes that pit bulls are a misunderstood breed. He says Alexander the Great is kind and gentle.

Alexander the Great was found locked in the basement of an abandoned house in Dayton in late 2012. He slowly recovered at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton until Drescher came along to claim him.

He met his new family Friday and wagged his tail all the way home.

A dog whose name is truly befitting.
