Harry Potter Author Rescues British Greyound Sapphire

The owner of a dog rescue center has revealed she was left spellbound when she realized a mystery woman offering to rehome one of her animals was world-renowned author JK Rowling.

Celia Fernie had no idea the woman who arrived with her family to look at her greyhounds was the multi-millionaire Harry Potter creator. The writer asked to adopt a four-year-old dog named Sapphire - and handed over a signed £1,000 check. Mrs Fernie, 61, said: "I apologized and said 'Oh I'm sorry, I didn't realize who you were'."

Way to go JK Rowling! You're a pet lover for sure!
