Brody the stolen senior goes home

I received an email one day, at the end of April 2012, from Celeste at GSP Rescue New England. She had a friend that had contacted her for help with a unique problem. Seems someone had stolen her neighbors senior black lab named Brody. The Florida family searched for days and, after getting a tip from another neighbor, found Brody in a shelter in MD. She had no idea how to get him home and was hoping for assistance. Being a sucker for seniors, of course I could help!

Turned out the shelter would not allow anyone but his owner to pull him. So his owner had to fly to MD, pull him and then fly home. While she was flying, he was riding! 4 hours after she arrived home she was picking up her sweet boy from the final driver. A wonderful, unforgettable transport to reunite Brody with his family.

Debby had nothing but praise for the Mutt Movers and she called and talked to several people who wrote stories about the entire drama. You just can’t make this stuff up!
