MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A woman in Memphis, Tennessee, says she was shocked to discover that a dog she had briefly cared for had escaped a different foster home, wandered 11 miles across the city and wound up sitting on her porch.

Rachel Kauffman tells The Commercial Appeal she already had two dogs of her own when she took in a White Shepherd named Hank from a shelter and looked after him for a few days before sending him, as planned, to a longer-term foster home while he was treated for heartworms.

Kauffman says Hank quickly bonded with her during six days together. On Sunday, two days after being sent to the other home, Hank escaped. Animal lovers searched for him until they found him at Kauffman's home Tuesday.
