Ted's incredible journey: SPCA dog escapes, treks across town to find woman who fed him treats

This is the love story of Ted and Abbey — a shelter dog that escaped and trekked across the city to find the kennel worker who had fed him some cheese-flavoured bacon strips.

Ted first arrived at the Northwest Territories SPCA in Yellowknife last Friday.

"He was scared. It's a very terrifying place, first off, for dogs and cats," recalled Abbey Boyd, who works at the SPCA. 

The two met officially on Saturday morning during Abbey's shift. She tried taking timid Ted for a walk.

"He wouldn't let me take him. Nobody could walk him for a day."

Then, Abbey did one small act that may have changed the destiny of the two forever.

"I fed him cheese-flavoured bacon strips to try to get him to love me," said Abbey.

"...Say, 'GOD is sufficient for me.' In Him the trusters shall trust." (Quran 39:38)
