A dog lost in a tornado couldn’t be more loved today, but not by one, but two families. The Robinson family who lost the dog after a tornado touched down and demolished their home, wanted their lost dog Rosco back. Little did they know he had wandered 45 miles away from home and had been adopted by a new family, according to the Associated Press on Dec. 17.
Rosco was found wandering 45 miles from his home in Mellot, which is northwest of Indianapolis. He was brought to the local animal shelter, the Clinton County Humane Society. After five days Rosco went up for adoption and a new family adopted him.
Volunteers helped the Robinson family search for Rosco and folks kept an eye out for online listings. A volunteer saw Rosco on the animal shelter’s Facebook page, but it was too late, the dog had already gone home with another family.
The new family refused to give the dog up and they legally had possession of the animal. It seems that the new owner had a change of heart after hearing the Robinson family’s plight in the media. The shelter brought the two families together and the new owner agreed to let Rosco go home with the Robinson family.
