Dogs are amazing creatures. This old gal found her way home after being left 30 miles away. Only one problem, they didn’t want her back. Don’t worry, there’s a happy ending. This one really touched my heart, but then again it doesn’t take much when it comes to talking about dogs.
Social media networks recently exploded with the story of Lady, an elderly black Labrador from Kansas, who walked 30 miles to get back to her home after her owners surrendered her to a shelter because they no longer wanted her. People were outraged by how cold-hearted Lady’s owners were, but don’t worry, things happen for a reason, and the rejected dog has landed the best forever home she could ever wish for. She is now part of Helen Rosburg’s pack. Rosburg is the heir to the Wrigley chewing gum fortune.
The story goes something like this. Lady’s original owner died in 2012, she was then adopted by a Sedan, Kansas, family who later gave her up when they acquired a small young dog, with too much energy for this old gal to handle. The family thought it was best to send Lady to the shelter instead of letting her live her golden years with them.
