Dog with failing kidneys receives miracle donation from one of her puppies
ST. LOUIS – A dog who gave everything she had to a litter of puppies has been repaid with the ultimate gift. This story begins three years ago on a hot summer day in southern Missouri. A dog named Star was found in a plywood box with a litter of puppies. They had no food or water, according to Shannon Flegle, DVM and owner of Murphy Animal Hospital in High Ridge.
