Lots of Interest in Adopting Hospice Dog


Thanks to a story WTOC aired last night (Hospice Seeks Home for Dog), Hospice Savannah is one step closer to making a dying man's wish come true. Yesterday we introduced you to Heidi the dog. Her owner was a patient at Hospice for about a week. He died yesterday morning.

His dying wish was to make sure Heidi got a loving family. After our story aired, a dozen people have already called to adopt Heidi.

"I think a lot of people are interested in finding her a home, so this patient's end-of-life goal can be completed," said Suzanne Wages of Hospice Savannah.

The hospice is trying to locate Heidi's vet, but they say the eight-year-old Akita mix seems to be very healthy.
