Stray Dog Leads Her Back Into The Woods To Find Her Family

One day, while Kathy Wilkes-Myers was taking a walk along a country highway, she spotted a Rottweiler on the side of the road. She was cautious at first, but as she got closer she realized this dog didn’t seem to be dangerous.

The dog ran to Kathy and leaned against her legs looking for a pet. Kathy assumed the dog was lost or abandoned.  She didn’t look healthy and it was obvious she hadn’t eaten in a while.

Kathy took the dog she named Ella, home with her.

Kathy could not shake the feeling that something was odd about this dog. Until one day everything suddenly clicked. Kathy remembered there was a bad car wreck in the area not long before she found Ella. That’s when she wondered if the dog had been part of the crash.

She returned to the spot of the crash with Ella in tow, and as soon as they got there Ella began to tug at her leash, dragging Kathy over to a pile of personal things from the family that she had collected and hidden after the wreck.

Kathy was heartbroken when she realized that Ella was looking for her family, but she didn’t know how to tell her they were gone. That’s when she decided to see if she could at least find a relative of the family who would be able to take Ella in so she could stay with people she knew. She contacted the highway patrol for information, and that’s when she learned something stunning…

Ella’s family was alive!

It turned out,  Ella had been thrown out of the car during the crash but hid in the woods when rescue teams arrived. Ella then stayed at the crash site for 13 days waiting for them to come back when Kathy found her.

Ella’s owner, Michelle, had been looking for Ella and Kathy was able to reunite the two in a heartwarming homecoming!
