When this young man saw Sadie, a collie-husky mix, on an adoption site, he knew she was his dog. There was only one problem: Sadie was in a shelter located in a different state. But nothing could stop the 23-year-old from adopting her. Joel spent all his savings and bought a plane ticket from Portland, ME to Minneapolis, MN to get to her. A one way ticket there is. Thinking back, Joel admits it wasn’t the best plan he could have thought of, but he doesn’t regret anything because his plan, flawed as it was, got him Sadie.
