Kate Dawson is a dedicated pet parent.
Dawson had just landed in Sydney when she heard her dog, Stella, was missing at London’s Heathrow Airport. She left her fiance at the airport and spent $7,000 on the next flight to London to help search for her missing five-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback.
Stella was believed to have escaped after airport staff opened her travel kennel to give her a walk before putting her on the plane.
The missing dog showed up a week later in someone’s garden a few miles away from the airport. Stella was weak and dehydrated but alive and well. Dawson said that she had been completely distraught over the loss of her pet. She is extremely happy that she has been reunited with her beloved dog.
