Feral dog had learned to trust again in her final years

After spending months feeding her in the wild and gaining her trust, Spring Lake Township resident Ann Turchan rescued this dog, later named Haven, in 2017. Haven went on to live a grand life with an adoptive mom. Haven died earlier this month.

A feral dog that stole the hearts of many local residents in recent years has passed away.

But this is not a story of grief as much as it is a story of thanks — from the adoptive owner, the dog, and the people who loved her and helped her.
