    Dog drags woman to safety after crash
    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    THOMASVILLE, Ga. - A south Georgia woman bloodied in a car wreck says she owes her life to a German shepherd who - thankfully - just wouldn't stay in his yard.

    Shannon Lorio says that after her car careened down an embankment, the wayward dog found her bruised and battered on the vehicle's trunk, pulled her by her shirt collar, dragged her about 50 yards through briars to a highway and let her lean against him so she could flag a passing motorist.

    His new name: Hero.

    ''That dog is always going to have a special place in my heart,'' Lorio, 36, said yesterday. ''He's my hero.''

    Hero's previous owners have signed him over to the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society since the Jan. 26 accident because he kept wandering off.

    He won't be in the shelter long: Not only have at least 50 people offered to adopt him, a dog trainer has agreed to see if he has the right stuff for search and rescue work.

    Lorio's car tumbled backward down an embankment in a remote, heavily wooded area. She said she lost control on a curve and was thrown onto the trunk.

    ''I was bleeding from my face and my nose,'' she said. ''All of a sudden, I felt a presence - a really huge presence. He was straddling me. I have watched too many horror movies about werewolves and vampires. I thought he was going to eat me.''

    Instead, the dog licked her face, she said.

    The 2-year-old dog, weighing 70 pounds, dragged the 136-pound Lorio to the highway, then stood by to help her summon help before she collapsed, she said.

    I remember the article saying that when the tiger cubs start eating meat (at 3monthes I think) they will need to seperate them.

    It's Dove at First Sight
    Wednesday, September 12, 2007

    It's a tale straight out of Disney – an abandoned baby monkey, close to death, is revived by the love of a bird.

    The 12-week-old macaque was rescued on Neilingding Island, in Goangdong Province, China, after being abandoned by his mother.

    Taken to an animal hospital, he was weaned back to physical health but still showed little appetite for life.

    It was not until a fellow patient, a white pigeon, took him under her wing and showed him love and affection that he perked up.

    Now the two are inseparable, say staff.
