A 3-year old black Labrador mix named Gypsy Girl was found living on a creek bank among cats on Friday in New Hampshire. She was adopted by a family in March of 2010 then slipped her collar and had been living on the streets for a year when she was spotted.
Gypsy Girl is originally from Alabama and has a bit of a wandering spirit. The family who adopted her looked for her for a little while and then gave up. Gypsy Girl wasn’t seen again until a year later when she was spotted by an employee of Kitty Angels. Kitty Angels is a non-profit organization that works with feral cats.
The sighting of Gypsy Girl living on the creek bank with several cats was reported to the Granite State Dog Recovery Center who then set a trap to catch the stray dog. It took 11 days of watching her and baiting a kennel with food to catch Gypsy Girl.
Finally, on day 12, she couldn’t resist a dish with marrow bone in it and rescuers were able to bring her into the humane society of greater Nashua for treatment. Other than being treated for Lyme disease Gypsy Girl is happy and seems glad to be found.
The dog had been living in the wooded area around Nashua county with no human contact whatsoever for over a year.
Gypsy Girl is very friendly and was giving kisses to the rescuers and wagging her tail as soon as she was found. Since her former family abandoned her, she will be put up for adoption soon. She will have to go to a home that is experienced with dogs however as she will try to escape if she can and is full of wanderlust.
