Kathy Wilkes-Myers was walking along a country road near her home when she spotted what looked like a stray Rottweiler sitting by the side of the road. Approaching with caution – as she was familiar with dangerous street dogs in the area – to get a closer look, the dog ran over to Kathy, rubbing against her legs, looking for some affection.
Kathy assumed that the dog, named Ella, had been abandoned by her family or had gotten lost. Ella was in bad shape and obviously hadn’t had anything to eat for a while, she looked very slim, especially for a Rottweiler.
Kathy decided the right thing to do was to take Ella home with her. A few days later, Kathy remembered hearing about a bad car accident which happened in the same area and around the same time that she had found Ella.
After realising this, Kathy and Ella headed back to the scene of the crash. Once they arrived, Ella started forcefully pulling on her leash, leading Kathy over to a stash of personal belongings which turned out to be things she had collected and hidden after the car accident.
Kathy was distraught, knowing that Ella, the loyal Rottweiler, was still hopefully searching for her family, but didn’t realize that they were gone.
With more details in hand about where Ella had come from, Kathy contacted the highway patrol to see if she could get some information about the family who were involved in the car crash, and hopefully find one of their family members who would adopt Ella. But, the call to the highway patrol turned up an incredible surprise…
Ella’s family was still alive!
Kathy found out that Ella had actually been hurled from the car during the crash, and then hidden in the woods out of fear, so when the rescue teams came, nobody had seen her. It seems Ella knew her family had survived, and remained at the scene of the crash for almost 2 weeks, hoping for their return.
Michelle – Ella’s owner – had been looking for Ella, all the while Ella was looking for Michelle. Thankfully, Kathy was able to bring the two back together!
