The Black Lab named LADY -- she walked 30 miles to get rejected at her home... THEN GETS ADOPTED!!

YOU MAY CRY THEN GET A BIG SMILE.

Dog That Walked 30 Miles To Get Rejected By Owner Now Getting 5-Star Treatment And New Home (UPDATED)



Ma Kettle is an arthritic senior Lab who walked 30 miles to try to get home -- only to be rejected by her former family once she arrived.

The dog had seen a country song's amount of sadness already. Ma Kettle's previous owner -- who called her Lady -- died in 2012, leaving her homeless. She was adopted out of the Chautauqua County Animal Shelter, in Kansas, but then given away again for not getting along with a new puppy.

She escaped her third home, and walked back to the family with the puppy, but the journey ended with her being sent back to the shelter -- and then this heartbreaking Facebook post:

Her life has since become a fairy tale.
