Lab Walks 30 Miles to Find Its Owner. Instead, She Found a New Life.

Once in a while, a story breaks out that just tugs at your heart strings.

Lady, a grey-faced lab that had a traumatic life was placed in a shelter in 2012 because her owner died.

A family from Sedan, Kansas, adopted the beautiful lab after her owned passed and kept the dog until the family got a smaller dog earlier this year. The dogs didn’t get along and Lady was once again sent to a shelter.

After being adopted by her third family, Lady yearned for her previous owners and the poor lab walks 30 miles to be with her family only to be turned away. Unfortunately, they had to drive her back to the shelter because the family couldn’t take her back as the dogs still didn’t get along.

Later, a Chautauqua County Animal Shelter volunteer named Cindy Barclay Powell, posted on Facebook : “Her ‘family’ can not take her back because of the little dogs. Is there anyone out there who can give this girl a home?”

“She may not have many years left. She is spayed, house-broken and leash-trained, mellow, having problems walking (so her travels back to Sedan amazed me).”

The story caught the attention of author and heir to the Wrigley-chewing gum company, Helen Rich.

Not only did she adopt Lady, but sent a private jet to whisk her away to her new home in Florida.
