A Gypsy Comes Home

–Pam Harrison, Site Admin

RouteBeen a warm and fuzzy day. On New Year’s Day, coming home from a family visit, we rescued this lost dog, dodging cars on the Western KY Parkway. Penny lured her over with my sandwich, and the poor girl seemed grateful to have a ride to somewhere. This dog had never been inside a home a day in her life, we would soon learn, and I named her Gypsy before we’d made it back to Hardin County. Little did I know how dead-on that name was going to be.
On January 4th, a happenstance by an unwitting visitor set Gypsy back on the road again. No one is sure how long she’d been gone before Patty shouted down the stairs, “Is Gypsy down there with you?!?” The rest of the day would be spent in tears and anxiety as staff and volunteers searched for this poor dog, in vain. But, by the power of love and social media, this dog is warm and secure at ARC again tonight. Stand by and you can get the recap of a strange week. Check out these posts and follow the comments. 🙂

We would later learn how far and wide the word was being posted:

Leslie Clifford Smith: Gypsy was also was put on the Hardin County Animal Shelter page. Last time I looked she had over 200 shares from there. She was also put on the Kentuckiana Lost and Found Pets page by my friend. I’m so glad she safely made it back!!
