From Indiana to Oregon, a True Miracle!

Home or Bust

All of us know that dogs have amazing hearts and are very smart.  They are part of our lives and our families and we all would be devastated if they were to be lost. Nearly 90 years ago, the Brazier family felt the pain of losing their dog Bobbie while on a trip in Indiana. Bobbie, now known as "The Wonder Dog", found his way over 3,000 miles, through rivers, over mountain peaks, and through bone-chilling blizzards.  Bobbie arrived on the front porch of the Brazier family home soaking wet, feet worn to the bone, thin as can be, and covered in dirt. But he and the Brazier family were complete once again and happy to have him home.

World War II

Army Captain Stanley C. Raye left home to serve his country during a time of need.  Joker, Raye's cocker spaniel, was not the type to let his owner out of his sight. Joker tracked Raye with his keen sense of smell, snuck onto a ship as a stowaway, and eventually located Raye on a secret base in the South Pacific.  No wonder dogs are used for tracking!

Mondern Day Wonder Dogs

Zena, a beautiful Alaskan Malamute, was up for adoption at a local shelter in Indiana.  Mary Beninghoff was a volunteer worker at this shelter and developed a strong connection with Zena.  Mary already owned several cats, so adopting Zena was out of the question, because this Alaskan Malamute hated cats.  Zena was adopted many times by various people, but every time, she would escape her new home and make her way back to the animal shelter to find her best friend Mary.

These stories occur more often then you might think and if you have any amazing stories of your own, we would love to hear them. Please comment below and tell us about your wonder dog!
