A Dog Walked 30 Miles to Find Its Former Owners, But They Didn’t Want Her Back…So She Was Adopted By the Heir to the Wrigley Fortune
Back in 2012, a black lab named Lady ended up at an animal shelter in Sedan, Kansas after her owner died.
She grew attached to a family that adopted her, but they eventually brought her back...they thought she was too rough with a new puppy they got. Which is weird, because Lady is pretty old. She looks like she's at least 10.
Anyway, another family took her in. But then she ran off, and walked 30 MILES back to the FIRST family's house. And at that point, NEITHER of the families wanted her anymore. So she ended up back at the same shelter for a third time.
Which is when a woman named Helen Rosburg heard about her. Helen is the great-granddaughter of the guy who started Wrigley Gum. And she has a farm in Odessa, Florida that's specifically for rescue animals.
So on Thursday, Helen sent a PRIVATE JET to pick up Lady in Kansas and fly her to Florida. And for the rest of her life, she'll be living in a 10,000 square foot house, and get to run around with other dogs on a 120-acre farm.
As a guy who raised a lab to the ripe old age of 14, I can't tell you how touching this story is to me. I'm sure it is to anyone who ever cared for an elderly dog. Lady will get to live out the rest of her days the way she deserves to.
