A dog in Oklahoma missed her family so much that she made the twenty-mile journey to find them twice, despite the fact that her family was unable to keep her.
Cathleen, a 6-year-old Great Pyrenees mix, was living with a family outside Oklahoma City, when for unknown reasons her family packed up and moved. They were unable to keep her so she was surrendered to a family in Prague, Oklahoma, who offered to care for Cathleen until a permanent home could be found for her.
Cathleen wasn’t happy with her new arrangements so she walked from Prague to Seminole, roughly a 20-mile trip and a six our walk to hopefully be reunited with her family in December, 2017. She made the journey in the cold, on foot but was returned to Prague where she made the trek a second time.
She was spotted wandering the neighborhood where the family lived and was picked up by an animal control officer. When she was returned to Prague she was given up by that family, as well, because they couldn’t control the fact that Cathleen liked to wander.
All is now well for Cathleen because she was recently adopted by a family in Texas. According to the star-telegram.com Cathleen is not the only dog recently reunited with her owners, if only briefly, and in such dramatic fashion. Recently, a 13-year old yellow lab by the name of Sophie wandered away from her family in Maine. She was found buried in the snow five days later and is expected to make a full recovery.
