    Half-Breed Wolf Dog Hero Rescues Elderly Owners From Snowstorm

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,234599,00.html
    NEW YORK When Eve and Norman Fertig rescued a sick, two-week-old half wolf, half German shepherd puppy from a breeder almost seven years ago, they'd never dreamed that the animal one day would save their lives.
    "God is watching; he's watching all the time," Eve Fertig told FOXNews from her home at the Enchanted Forest Wildlife Sanctuary in Alden, N.Y.

    He apparently was watching on Oct. 12, when the 81-year-old Fertigs were treating injured animals in the forest sanctuary on their property. One such animal is a near-18-year-old raven, while another is a crow who was shot, blind in one eye with two broken legs.

    It was routine for the couple to feed and exercise the dozen or so animals there around 7 p.m. every night.

    I wish they had posted a picture of Shana. She sounds beautiful (inside and out).

    I saw a video of this story on CCN and she's big and beautiful and she absolutely was NOT going to lose her owners!

    She was rescued from a bad home at the age of 2 weeks and clearly thought she had to rescue right back!
