SHEBOYGAN — A couple from Sheboygan drove 14 hours to Mississippi to adopt a dog. Not just any dog.
Last weekend, Cheri and James Newman adopted Myron, a red hound mix, from the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League in Brookhaven, Mississippi. The couple adopted Myron’s sister, Myrna, from a Wisconsin shelter. Myrna and Myron had been at the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League since December, both undergoing treatment for hair loss.
The Daily Leader reports the shelter originally called the dogs Myrna and Myron, but their new family renamed them Molly and Mississippi.
