A dog in search of a new home is having trouble letting go of her past.

According to the Seminole Humane Society in Oklahoma, the previous owners of a six-year-old Great Pyrenees mix named Cathleen moved and could no longer keep her.

The owners placed Cathleen in a home in Prague, Okla. until the Seminole Animal Shelter could find her a forever home, KOCO reported.

But Cathleen missed her humans.

In fact, she missed them so much that she embarked upon a 20-mile journey back to Seminole from Prague to reunite with them, twice.

In a Facebook post, the Seminole Humane Society and Animal Shelter said,

Let us tell you the story of Cathleen. Cathleen is precious and her original family loved her very much. But they moved into a home in town where they couldn't keep her. So they gave her to someone in Prague a few months ago. Cathleen has traveled TWICE from Prague (about a 20 mile trip) and returned to her family in Seminole. Her heart wants to be with them but they cannot keep her. We have now stepped in to assist Cathleen on her next journey. 

Cathleen is a six year old Great Pyrenees mix. She is humble, kind and passive. Sweet and loves food. She is healthy, house broken, doesn't pull on a leash and loves to be around children. Cathleen has a calm temperament and wouldn't hurt a fly. She does great with other dogs. We are looking for an inside home for Cathleen with a fenced yard. Someone who has patience and is seeking a passive doggie. Cathleen has already been spayed but will need a rabies vaccine for 2018. Her adoption fee is $25.
