Dog travels 10 miles to find his shelter sweetheart »
This is Jade and Ben. They were surviving as strays in Indiana when Jade got preggers and the Humane Society brought the pair into the shelter. Jade had her puppies and they were soon adopted. But Jade and Ben spent several months in the shelter, even sharing the same pen. Then one day, a young family came in and adopted Ben. They had a three year old child and didn’t think they could handle more than one dog.
But Ben didn’t forget Jade! Three weeks into his new life, he escaped and ran into the night! Ben traveled 10 miles in the freezing cold, over busy streets and train-tracks, until he got back to the shelter! "He came out of nowhere and started licking her through the fence, like they were kissing," the news was told.
Well, what was Ben’s new family to do? Of course they adopted Jade and took them home together!
"They want to be together," said Debbie Floyd, president of the Humane Society board. "There hasn’t been a lot of human love in their lives. They found love with each other and that what’s make them happy. … Hopefully, they will live their lives happily ever after.”
Don’t cry. OK you can cry!
