The Request for Help from a Woman to Bring an Elderly Dog Back to the United States Turns into an Incredible Love Story

There’s nothing like the bond between a human and their dog. When Adri Pendleton was just 15 years old, she and her Border Collie, Nelly, had an instant connection. They grew up side by side and were inseparable.

This remained true even when Adri moved to the Netherlands with her then-boyfriend. Together, they lived a wonderful life! But after some time, it became clear that Adri and her partner would be better off apart.

Although it was the right choice, it made things a bit more complicated. Because Adri is disabled, she cannot live alone. This meant she had to return to California to live with her family.

While her ex was more than happy to contribute to the return costs, it wasn’t enough to get Nelly to fly across the world with her.

Nelly was 15 years old at the time. She had been diagnosed with epilepsy three years earlier, and the vet had recently discovered that she had a slight heart murmur. For these reasons, it was not possible to place her in the cargo hold.

She was allowed to travel in the cabin, but no airline would accept a dog of Nelly’s size to travel with Adri.

After considering all options, including transatlantic flights, only one remained: a private flight where Nelly would have the opportunity to stay in the cabin. But where could Adri find this option, and how much would it cost?
