Neil Gaiman has a dog named Cabal. He originally met him as Buck on the side of a highway where he thought the dog was lost and a stray. After stuffing the dog into his tiny car, he dropped Buck off at the local Humane Society known to be a no-kill shelter. The shelter managed to contact the owner who was a an aging farmer that could no longer look after the dog.
