Dog euthanized, found alive next day...

Wandering pit bull saves family...
Low cost spay/neuter list...
Web sites to explore...
A smile for you...
Hundreds of people want to adopt this lucky little dog
after his startling ordeal. He was euthanized along with
several other strays picked up, but somehow, he survived
the two injections and was found alive the next morning.
Lucky for him, the animal control tech allowed him to
live and his story has touched many hearts. This is
Last month, I mentioned a website from the CDC, the
Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, in which they
warn against allowing pets to sleep in bed with you.
It's a health hazard, they say. But here's another view,
which I happen to agree with. What do you think?
You probably already heard this story:
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- The wandering 65-pound
Pit Bull mix might have seemed menacing to some
passersby, but one woman will always remember him
as her "guardian angel." The dog, which authorities think
is lost and not a stray, successfully thwarted a robbery
attack on a mother and her 2-year-old son, who were held
at knifepoint Monday afternoon.
The Florida woman, who has been identified by authorities
simply as "Angela," was leaving a playground with her toddler
son in Port Charlotte when a man approached her in the
parking lot with a knife and told her not to make any noise
or sudden movements.
Suddenly, a dog mysteriously ran to the scene and charged
the man, who quickly fled.
Apparently the dog did not physically attack the man, but he
went at him and was showing signs of aggression, just
baring his teeth and growling and barking. It was clear he
was trying to defend this woman.
The exceptional part of the story is that the dog had never
met or even seen the people it quickly jumped to defend.
After the alleged thief ran away, Angela quickly placed her
son in the car and tried to drive off. Before she could, though,
the dog jumped into her backseat, waiting with her for the
police and animal control officers to arrive at the scene.
The dog was transported to a local shelter and if his owners
don't step forward within five days, Angela said she and
her family plan to adopt the savior she named "Angel."
