How can one dog help save the lives of people in the future?

Check out this great story from the St. Joseph News Press about Bailey, a shelter dog at the New Nodaway Humane Society, and one woman's battle to help save his life. Due to his unique medical condition, Bailey has been called a walking miracle. If doctors can repair his heart, it could lead to a breakthrough in cardiac surgery for dogs AND people in the future.

Thanks to the many volunteers who have helped raise money to pay for vet services/testing and to the specialists who have joined for Bailey's cause.
