A stray dog cared for by residents of a central Kansas town for more than eight years finally has a home.

The dog lived all those years near Buhler, eluding numerous efforts to catch her. Residents dubbed her D.D., short for "Ditch Dog."

They also did all they could to care for the dog, setting out food and watching out for her safety.

But no one could get close enough to catch the dog. But recently, resident Rachelle Cavanaugh began slowly taming the animal after she noticed it apparently had developed arthritis.

After weeks of work, D.D. finally accepted Cavanaugh's help and went home to live with her and three other dogs.

The Hutchinson News reports D.D. has some anxiety but mostly has adjusted to her new home.
