Nursing Home Residents Adopt Stray Dog

A dog that has repeatedly escaped an animal shelter in Michigan has found a new home... at a nearby nursing home.

The Antrim County Animal Control says Scout, a dog of unknown origins, scaled fences and crossed highways, leaving the shelter in the dead of night, and finding his way to the Meadow Brook Medical Care Facility in Bellaire.

And he did it night after night.

That’s when Marna Robertson, the administrator for Meadow Brook, threw up her hands.

“I’m a person who looks at outward signs, and if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be,” Robertson told the Detroit Free Press.

“He did that one time, two times, three times, and obviously that’s something that you should pay attention to. And I asked the staff, ‘Well, he wants to be here. Would anybody like to have a dog?’”

The residents, many of whom have dementia, terminal illnesses or no one to care for them, were thrilled to have the pooch around. He made the facilities feel more like home.
