Meet Lazarus the wonder dog!!

Life can throw all sorts of death at him, but he just won't give up. He's survived near fatal heartworms, a car accident, and an even an attempt to euthanize him!!

Lazarus ended up in an Alabama dog shelter after being hit by a car. His owner was moving and no longer able to care for the pup, so they just left him there at the shelter. Poor pup!

The shelter tried to get Lazarus adopted but no one was interested, so less than a month later, a vet came to the shelter and lethally injected him. Normally, this sad story would end here. But not for Lazarus.

Bretange (pronounced like "Britney") is a real American hero dog!
