Having a pet brings a wonderful aura to your home. Whether it's a dog, cat, bird, fish, whatever, having that sense of unconditional love helps any of us relax after a hard day's work or makes a lazy day snuggling with them very nice. There is one particular dog that I want to point out today because of what she has done for many other pups but could face a sad fate unless she finds a home soon in Tyler, Texas. Her name is Ivy and her story is pretty cool. Read more about her below and talk with your family to see if she could be a fit for your loved ones.

Ivy is a one and a half year old terrier mix available for adoption at the Smith County Animal Control and Shelter. The thing about Ivy is that she not any ordinary doggo, she has been willing and able to donate blood to help save other dogs. Ivy is a universal blood donor and has been at the shelter since June 2. We don't know how or why she arrived at the shelter. As we know with the Smith County Animal Shelter, they are Not a no kill shelter. That means that Ivy's heroics could come to an end if she is not adopted soon.

She is a universal blood donor as well as an adorable, very adoptable dog. - Saving Animals from Euthanasia in Texas volunteer Pearl Wittholt
