The Humane Society in Seminole, Oklahoma, is currently home to a dog who loves her family so much that she walked 20 miles to find them. Twice.
Cathleen, a six-year-old Great Py mix, had a family, but they moved and could not take her with them. They rehomed her with another family in Prague, a nearby town, a few months back, but, since then, she’s walked 20 miles and returned to her family in Seminole. And she’s done it twice.
According to KOCO, the ACO at the shelter says,
“She’s very sweet, calm and docile. She wants to be everybody’s friend.”
She always has a smile on her face, and, like all dogs, has so much love to give. Cathleen was determined to give that love to her original family. But it just wasn’t possible.
Fortunately, this extraordinarily loyal girl, who is described as a ‘love bug’, will be getting a new family. The shelter reports that since her story aired, they’ve had an abundance of applications from families opening up their hearts and homes to her. Though they may not take the place of her first family, we hope Cathleen can open her own heart and adopt them too!
