Why Angel is so special:

I adopted Angel in May 2010. On 9/21/11, she woke me up in the middle of the night to go out which she doesn't usually do. When we got out, she ran to a man lying in our parking lot. It was 38 degrees outside and he was freezing! I called 911, put my coat over him, and Angel stayed right by him until the paramedics arrived. I later found out that he'd had a major heart attack! I have MS and live on the 11th floor, so it's amazing that she knew something was wrong. She saved him - she's his hero!!

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

I was a stray dog, starving, abused, and SCARED! A lady came in and took me for a walk. She took me home and showed me what real love is. She has MS so I make sure she gets plenty of rest by getting on the bed and whining when she's tired. She'll never hurt me, she keeps me clean, warm, fed, exercised, and we play a lot! We love each other, and we'll take care of each other from now on. Now I'm the happiest dog in the building with lots of friends, both human and animal! I'll never have to be afraid again!
