How Ted found Abbey is still a mystery.
“It doesn’t really make sense, how he would have chosen or found me out of all the smells,” said Abbey.
The SPCA shelter is located in an industrial area on the outskirts of the city. The total distance between the SPCA and Abbey’s house is 5.5 kilometres through established roads.
That means the pooch would have had to trek past the Yellowknife airport, possibly across some ponds and lakes, and through several suburban neighbourhoods in order to find Abbey’s home.
