Back in September we reported on a dog in Minnesota, named Bruno, who would travel from his home to town everyday to greet the citizens. We were thrilled to find that another such dog exists!

Tyler Wilson was at the gas station when he met Dew, a friendly mutt. Wilson had seen him wandering before and figured he had been lost for a while, so he checked Dew’s collar:

Wilson was relieved to see the doggie had an ID tag, but he would never had guessed what it read: “My name is Dew. I am not lost. I like to roam. Tell me to go home.” “Once I saw it, we both looked at each other and I knew he was OK,” says Wilson. “It was so cute.” But Wilson didn’t tell the pooch to go home just yet. “I pet him and even hugged him,” Wilson says. “He got me a little wet from the rain, but it was worth it.” It turned out Dew is a bit of local celebrity, known for strolling around on his own and greeting people. After his adventures, he always returns to a nearby farm where he lives with his family. “Dew loves to make new friends,” his owners told The Dodo. “Fortunately, Dew is chipped and wears a GPS tracker so when his sneaky little self gets out and about, we always know where he is! He just likes to spread the love.”

It’s so nice that a dog can be their own person these days. We love these stories and hope that more of these friendly hounds wander into our hearts soon.

If you’d like to learn more about Dew, he has his own Facebook page.
