Zander the Samoyed-Husky
In 2012, a 7-year-old, 70 pound Samoyed–Husky mix named Zander, was found outside of the same hospital that his owner was staying in. John Dolan, got a phone call one morning on his cell phone. He was shocked when the person at the other end told him he was standing outside of the same hospital he was a patient in, and had his dog. The dog seemed sad and had been moping around his house before deciding to do something about it. Zander, made an arduous 2-mile hike to the hospital that included crossing a nature reserve, stream and busy 4 lane highway.
