A one-of-a-kind pet is up for adoption at the Peninsula Humane Society. Meet "Wingo Star" -- an adult domesticated peacock.

ABC7 shared his story Thursday. It was seen by a couple from Pittsburg who already had peacocks as pets.

They say their male just died, leaving their peahen heartbroken.

The couple drove more than two hours to the Peninsula Humane Society to adopt Wingo.

"Wingo is really happy right now. He slept up in the roosting area last night, right next to the female. She's been preening him today. They've been sitting together. Gosh they just love each other already," said Bob Irwin.

The couple says that Wingo spent the day exploring his new home and environment.
