Old Lab that walked 30 miles back home adopted

SEDAN, Kan. (AP) An aging Labrador retriever that walked 30 miles back to a Kansas family that didn’t want her has found a home with an heiress in Florida.

Kelsey Loyd, with the Chautauqua County Animal Shelter in southern Kansas, says the dog, “Lady,” was adopted twice, but the first family said the old dog didn’t get along with other pets. A second family adopted her 30 miles away, but Lady escaped and walked back to her previous home.

KWCH-TV reports that Lady’s life changed recently when Helen Rich saw her story on Facebook. Rich, an heiress to the Wrigley’s gum company, owns an animal shelter in Florida.

She sent an assistant to Kansas in a private jet to pick up Lady, who arrived in Tampa late Thursday.
