Stray Dog Walks Over 100 Miles To Return To Elderly Couple Who Had Shown Her Kindness

Dogs form lasting bonds with people and other animals in ways that we can’t understand. It’s a wonder how they can maintain such relationships in the back of their minds for so long, but all it takes is one act of kindness for them to remember these special people in their lives forever.

An elderly couple had helped out a stray dog that they had named Negrita when they found her emaciated on the side of the road in Rivadavia, Argentina. They helped her regain her strength as well as delivered her puppies. They kept her and her puppies around for a while so that they could all be better off under heir watchful eye.

Once the puppies were weaned, they all went off to loving homes, as well as one for Negrita. They thought it was for the best, believing that they were too old to care for her. However, two weeks later, they got a call saying that she went missing. A search turned up nothing, and it was with a heavy heart that everyone thought that the worst had happened. However, one day, they found the dog on their doorstep one morning. The dog had managed to walk 100 miles just to find them again!

She was so determined to get there that she’d walked her paw pads sore. She was extremely tired and thirsty when she got there, so much so that she drank an entire bucket of water and slept for an entire day. The owner offered to come and pick her up, but the couple decided that they couldn’t bear to part with her.

Talk about a happy ending to a great story. Share away, people!
