It’s another Halloween special of barks from beyond and howls from the other side. I’ve got some real scary doggie hauntings here, as well as gentle and courageous spirits. Just like last year, get ready to be scared by things that go woof in the night.
Sheba, Ghost Dog of the Bahamas
Ask any German Shepherd owner and they will swear on their mother’s grave about the undying sense of loyalty and emotional bond these dogs have with their owners. In this story, this bond extends from another world into ours, even to this day.
During an intense hurricane in the Bahamas, late 1800s, a sailing ship was traveling from Cuba to Bermuda. Among the passengers was a family with two daughters and a German Shepherd named Sheba. During the trip, a strong hurricane struck the ship so powerful that the hull split sending the two sisters and Sheba into the sea. The two sisters did all they could to hang onto Sheba, but powerful waves tore them apart. Sheba found one of the girls and pulled her to a nearby shore. Then the dog heard a faint cry. It was the other sister calling out for help. Although Sheba was exhausted, she swam out sea to rescue the other girl. They never made it to shore.
