TENNESSEE —

A woman was shocked when her former foster dog showed up at her house.

Rachel Kauffman told the Commercial Appeal that she took in a white shepherd named Hank from a shelter as a foster dog. She only cared for him for about two days, but the two formed a tight bond.

Kauffman already had two dogs of her own and a puppy she was fostering. She had no plans to grow her furry family.

As planned, Hank moved to a longer-term foster home a few days later.

But just two days after moving into the new home, Hank escaped and made his way back to Kauffman's home in Memphis, Tennessee. A rescue group called Animal Lovers searched for him until he turned up at Kauffman's house.

“When it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be,” said Kauffman.
