Talk about a nice landing!

The dog that fell out of Kathie Lee Gifford arms during a live segment of the Today show has been adopted.

The homeless pooch took a dive into a pen full of adoptable pups on Oct. 11, and though the dog wasn't injured, Gifford was feeling wounded afterward.

"The puppy's ok, but I’m a wreck," she told Matt Lauer. "It's very upsetting for me. I have three dogs of my own and I adore dogs."

According to Today.com, the tiny pooch was adopted from New York's North Shore Animal League recently.

Gifford is happy things worked out for the slippery little guy. "I'm so glad," she said on the show Wednesday, "And it's far, far, far away from me."
