An elderly black Labrador retriever who once walked 30 miles to return to a home that did not want her has now been rescued by an heiress with a soft spot for animals.
Lady was adopted by a family in Sedan, Kansas, after her owner died in 2012. But she did not get along with smaller dogs that the family adopted, so she was taken to a shelter.
The mellow Lab was again adopted, this time by a woman who lived 30 miles from the previous family with the small dogs. She grabbed headlines when she walked all 30 miles to get back to that family -- a family that did not want to take her back.
At this point, the story becomes a fairy tale.
Helen Rich, the Wrigley chewing gum heiress, recently lost her own senior black Labrador. She saw a Facebook post about Lady and decided to adopt her.
Rich sent her personal assistants Chet Ragsdale and Barbara DeCiocco on a private jet to Kansas to pick Lady up.
