Before coming to live with his current owners, Winston was abused. But now, Winston is paying it forward…
As a regular donor, Winston ensures to give blood every couple of months. His blood saves the lives of many dogs in need.
“Dogs and cats need blood, just like [humans] do in emergency situations,” Dr. Rebekah Heinz told ABC.
Winston, a friendly boxer who lives in Oklahoma, takes a needle to the jugular to give to other canines. That’s because like humans with an O negative blood type, “boxers are the universal blood donors for dogs,” Winston’s owner told.
His donations have helped numerous dogs, such as a Yorkie named Barkley, who lost a large amount of blood when he had to have his spleen removed.
