When thieves stole one family’s car with their dog still inside the vehicle, the pooch’s owners were naturally distraught. And, as a result, they launched an ambitious rescue mission to get their canine companion back. Three days into their search, however, the worried family received an urgent call from the police.
That family were the Hamiltons – Carolyn, her husband Jeff and their daughters Eleanore and Frances – who live in Truckee, California. And as with many parents, the couple would do practically anything for their children. So, when one of their girls was experiencing a tough time, they bought her a dog to cheer her up.
The Hamiltons would go on to name that dog Albus, after Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. And, according to Carolyn, the canine lived up to his namesake. Indeed, in October 2017 the mother-of-two told News 4 that what the dog had provided her family with had been “magical.”
