SHELTER DOG SAVES PUPPY’S LIFE AND BOTH GET ADOPTED

According to the Saint Augustine Record, a black lab puppy named Gunther came into the Jacksonville Animal Care and Protective Services in bad shape.

He was anemic from flea infestation and extremely weak. Shelter workers feared he wouldn’t make it.

He was in desperate need of a blood transfusion. Fortunately, another young dog, a one-year-old Catahoula mix named Hula, was able to donate blood to help the pup.
