Heiress Adopts Rejected Kansas Dog

KSAL StaffAugust 1, 2014

An aging Labrador retriever who 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, named 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.

Lady’s life changed recently when Helen Rich saw her story on Facebook. Rich is an heiress to the Wrigley gum company and owns an animal shelter in Florida.

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