This is Dew.
Dew is somewhat of a local celebrity. He loves to make new friends, while he strolls around greeting people in the rural area of Kentucky where he lives.
He even has his own Facebook page.
People passing through the town see the friendly, well cared for yellow Lab and think they should return Dew to his owners. But when they look at his tag instead of listing contact information for the dog’s owner, the tag simply reads:
My name is Dew. I am not lost. I like to roam. Tell me to go home.
When Dew is finished being social, he always returns to the 70-acre farm nearby where he lives with his family that loves him.
They've learned to put up with his adventurous spirit.
Some might think it is dangerous to let Dew run around by himself but the alternatives are--
- Confinement to the house and walks on a leash
- Tie him up with a rope or chain
- Build an 7 foot high pen to keep him in
According to his family “Dew is chipped and wears a GPS tracker so when his sneaky little self gets out and about, we always know where he is! He just likes to spread the love.”
Dew is home every night and never misses a meal.
