Wandering Dog Isn't Lost, He's Just the Friendliest Roamer

A man thought this dog was lost until he read his ID tag.

Yellow Labrador "Dew" has a case of the wanderlust. The Kentucky canine resident has become a local celebrity with his wanderings.

Tyler Wilson saw Dew roaming around a gas station in Kentucky. The man had seen this dog once before. Dew came and sat next to Wilson.

Thinking the canine was surely lost, Wilson went to check the dog's collar. But he was in for a surprise.

Instead of listing the dog's address, the tag read:

"My name is Dew. I am not lost. I like to roam. Tell me to go home."

After that, Wilson said he knew the dog was okay. So the man snapped some photos of the pooch and got some hugs from him in the rain.

With repeated escapes from his 70-acre farm nearby, Dew's parents relented to the pooch's vagabond ways, giving him a new ID tag. The pup has a microchip and GPS tracker so the family always knows where he is. After his outings, Dew always comes back home.

With a growing fan club, Dew's Adventures on Facebook has over 51,000 likes.
