When the flight finally landed in New Hampshire, Harbaugh made sure Pinky was the last dog to be unloaded so he could say goodbye. Once she was loaded onto the truck headed to Last Hope K9 Rescue, he climbed on with her to pet her one final time. As the truck drove off, Harbaugh realized he didn’t want this to be goodbye.
“It wasn’t until I watched her truck drive away that I realized I was going to miss her,” Harbaugh said. “She stood out from all of the previous pets that I had met on my previous flights.”
In that moment, Harbaugh made a decision. He was going to track Pinky down, and he was going to adopt her.
