Genie was a rescued Greyhound at the age of 11. She was newly retired after 5 years of running and 5 years of breeding. Her new owners Neena and Tim Derf were very happy with their new dog.
Genie was taken to the vet for her annual shots on Sunday afternoon. That night, at about 3:30 A.M., she came into the bedroom and woke Neena. Since she never did that, Neena thought Genie was sick from the shots, and got up to take her out. To her shock, she found her husband, passed out at the other end of the house. He had an internal bleeding problem, and had hemorrhaged to the point that he was ten minutes from death.
Yes, Neena would have slept through it, if it weren’t for their miracle girl, Genie!
