Man Finds A ‘Lost’ Dog, Tries To Help Until He Reads The ID Tag

When Tyler Wilson spotted a wandering Golden Lab near his home in Kentucky, he thought the pooch was lost. “I’ve seen the dog a couple weeks before around that area,” Wilson told The Dodo. “

So when he came up to me at the gas station and sat next to me, I was like ‘this dog has been lost for a while.’”

Wilson was relieved to see the doggie had an ID tag, but he would never had guessed what it read: “My name is Dew. I am not lost. I like to roam. Tell me to go home.”

“Once I saw it, we both looked at each other and I knew he was OK,” says Wilson. “It was so cute.” But Wilson didn’t tell the pooch to go home just yet. “I pet him and even hugged him,” Wilson says. “He got me a little wet from the rain, but it was worth it.”

It turned out Dew is a bit of local celebrity, known for strolling around on his own and greeting people. After his adventures, he always returns to a nearby farm where he lives with his family.

“Dew loves to make new friends,” his owners told The Dodo. “Fortunately, 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.”
