According to today.com the family gave her to a friend in Kansas. Lady wasn't willing to stay; she wanted to go home. She has problems walking because of her arthritis, but still managed to limp 30 miles to go home to a family that didn't want her.
After that, neither family claimed her, and she was back in the shelter.
Many stories would end here, with a euthanized dog and angry comments on social media. Fortunately, Lady's story spread over the Internet and reached Helen Rich. Ms Rich is not only heiress to the Wrigley fortune; she is also deeply involved in rescue through the "On the Wings of Angels" initiative.
It didn't take long until Lady sat on a private jet, bringing her home to Ms Wrigley's farm and a large family of rescue dogs. Now she gets all the attention a dog could wish for.
