So have you all ever heard the American folk tale about Shep? The loyal dog who lived in a train station. He waited for his (deceased) master everyday to return until he slipped on the railroad tracks and was killed by a  train that could not stop in time. That is the definition of loyalty and love. He is from Fort Benton!

The story of Shep
