This stray dog has become a real
And the reason for his fame is as surprising as it is moving. ike is definitely not a normal dog!
In the small town of Ironton, Missouri (United States), a stray dog has become a real star. So much so that the locals even gave him a first name: Ike. And, if Ike has become the darling of the city, it’s for a surprising reason. In fact, every day, the dog goes to the same road intersection, and lands in the middle of the lanes to beg for food from motorists.
A large sign placed near where he gives alms
A profitable strategy since the drivers do stop to feed it. The animal is not fussy and eats almost everything … except hotdogs which don’t seem to be its cup of tea. Ike has become so famous that a large yellow sign with his likeness is placed where he begs to encourage motorists to slow down.
Ike even made the headlines on WTOL 11 on April 13, 2021.
A Facebook page gathering many fans was also created for him and t-shirts with his effigy are on sale there. No doubt, Ike has become Missouri’s most famous dog!
