An elderly black Labrador retriever who once walked 30 miles to return to a home that did not want her has now been rescued by an heiress with a soft spot for animals.

Lady was adopted by a family in Sedan, Kansas, after her owner died in 2012. But she did not get along with smaller dogs that the family adopted, so she was taken to a shelter.

The mellow Lab was again adopted, this time by a woman who lived 30 miles from the previous family with the small dogs.  She grabbed headlines when she walked all 30 miles to get back to that family -- a family that did not want to take her back.

At this point, the story becomes a fairy tale.

Helen Rich, the Wrigley chewing gum heiress,  recently lost her own senior black Labrador. She saw a Facebook post about Lady and decided to adopt her.

Rich sent her personal assistants Chet Ragsdale and Barbara DeCiocco on a private jet to Kansas to pick Lady up.

And where is Lady now? Sharing space at an 11,000-square foot home in Odessa, Fla., with five other dogs and several cats. With a spot right next to Rich.

“The dog will be right there where she is,” DiCioccio said. “We already have a bed for her.”  (tbo.com

Rich founded On the Wings of Angels Rescue and shelters scores of rescued animals on a large tract of land in Odessa.
