WICHITA, KS– The past few months have been pretty rough for a black Labrador named Lady, but her fortune is finally improving.
According to KCTV, Lady’s family dumped her 30 miles from home to get rid of her.
Miraculously, the dog made the long trek all the way back home only to be refused by her owners again!
A shelter worker posted about the dog on Facebook, begging for someone to adopt the animal. “The senior lab walked nearly 30 miles to come home,” Powell wrote on Facebook. “Is there anyone out there who can give this girl a home? She may not have many years left. She is spayed, house broken, leash trained, mellow, having problems walking.”
The Facebook post was shared nearly 7,000 times across Facebook. It went viral after Examiner.com picked up the story Wednesday.
Lady caught the attention of Wrigley Gum heiress Helen Rich Rosburg.
KCTV reports that Rosburg flew a private jet to Kansas on Thursday to whisk Lady to her Florida sanctuary for neglected animals.
Rosburg has vowed to give Lady a pampered life, and she will join the cats and dogs already inside Rosburg’s home. She will have plenty of room to play outside.
