Dog travels 2 days, walks 11 miles, to return to foster mom

A woman was shocked when her former foster dog showed up at her house.

Rachel Kauffman told the Commercial Appeal that she took in a white shepherd named Hank from a shelter as a foster dog. She only cared for him for about two days, but Rachel says they formed a tight bond.

As planned, Hank moved to a longer-term foster home a few days later. Just two days after moving into his new home, Hank escaped and made his way back to Rachel. A rescue group called Animal Lovers searched for him until he turned up at Rachel’s house.

“When it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be,” said Rachel.
