A NOBLE DOG STORY
BALDWIN PARK – A line is expected to form at a Los Angeles County animal shelter Monday, when a Labrador retriever who made worldwide headlines for her loyalty will be placed for adoption.
The black Lab is now named Grace by workers at the shelter in Baldwin Park, in the San Gabriel Valley. She was photographed standing guard in a busy La Puente street last week next to the body of a dog that had been struck and killed in heavy morning commute traffic.
A passing Good Samaritan spotted the animals on Hacienda Boulevard and placed traffic cones around them before alerting animal control workers.
Los Angeles County animal control workers retrieved the dead dog and the black Lab, and sent the passer-by’s photos to a wire service. The story hase since moved animal lovers around the world.
