Some animals are angels dressed in fur. That’s definitely the case when it comes to Figo, a service dog from New York.
When he saw a bus barreling towards his human, he didn’t think twice about putting himself between her and the danger. Figo took most of the blow from the bus, and although he was injured, he is expected to make a full recovery. His human is recovering in the hospital as well, and is so thankful she had Figo looking out for her that day.
Figo is truly the definition of a hero!
Providing food, vaccinations, bedding, and enrichment needs for dogs is a costly endeavor for animal shelters across the country. Due to the high cost of these basic necessities, shelters often have to limit the number of dogs that they can save and provide homes for.
