Labrador Who Walked 30 Miles Home To Previous Owner Is Adopted By Florida Heiress
Cindy Barclay Powell posted about the dog she called Ma 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 (so her travels back to Sedan amazed me).’
Lady’s life changed when Helen Rich [Rosburg] saw her story on Facebook. Rich is an heiress to the Wrigley gum company and owns an animal shelter. She sent an assistant to Kansas in a private jet to pick up Lady. The dog arrived in Tampa late Thursday and taken to her Florida sanctuary for neglected animals…When Rosburg learned about Lady’s plight, she stepped in. The plane was sent to Independence and a car ride was made Thursday afternoon to Sedan to pick up the tail-wagging Lady.
A rags-to-riches story if there ever was one!
