Dog walks 20 miles twice to get back to family

Dog walks 20 miles twice to get back to familyā€¯

An animal shelter is trying to find a new home for a determined dog that set out not once, but twice, to find her previous owners.

The family moved to a new home in Seminole, Oklahoma, and had to give up their 6-year-old Great Pyrenees mix, NBC affiliate WSMV reports.

And when she couldn't find her family the first time, the homesick pooch made the journey again.

An animal control officer picked up Cathleen in Seminole, where she has been waiting at the shelter for a third family.

Now, the shelter is hoping to find someone to take her in. Friendly. She wants to be everyone's friend.

Animal shelter manager Rebecca Acker told BuzzFeed News that the lengths Cathleen went to to get back to her original family were definitely an outlier.

It described Cathleen as a calm dog who's "humble, kind and passive" and "wouldn't hurt a fly". She is health, house broken, doesn't pull on a leash and loves to be around children, ' the animal shelter posted on Facebook.

On Friday, the shelter announced that Cathleen now has a new home in Texas. 'We are working hard on just the ideal, secure place'. She's now available for viewing at the Seminole Animal Shelter.

The adoption fee for Cathleen is $25.

When the story made it to Twitter, it made many users there sad that the family gave her up.

The humane society's post drew quite a bit of media attention.
