"Imagine the loyalty of hanging in through the worst of circumstances and being here waiting," Gaylord told local news station ABC10. “You could never ask for better animals.” Gaylord learned of Madison’s survival with the help of animal rescuer Shayla Sullivan, who...

Cities that can afford better, obtain bred-for-task dogs, frequently bred and trained in Europe.
