Daisy's nose knows how to save lives.
Since the Labrador was a puppy, she has been trained at the England-based charity Medical Detection Dogs to sniff out cancer and other fatal diseases in samples of breath, skin and urine, reports Advertiser and Review.
Now 10 years old, Daisy has successfully detected over 550 cases of cancer and is being awarded for her priceless contributions to the lives of others. The keen-nosed pup was recently given the Blue Cross Medal for her work in the field of cancer prevention and detection.

In honor of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we bring you a distinguished senior pet looking for a loving place to spend forever. Meet Elliot, a 7-year-old border collie mix recently surrendered to the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter in Billings, Montana.
Oct. 12 was a sad day for Elliot. She was given up to the shelter by her owners because she kept escaping the yard and they worried she would get hurt. True to her breed, Elliot clearly has a lot of energy and she's also very smart, so the shelter is looking for an active family with a secure yard to adopt her.

A District of Columbia woman has spent more than $35,000 in a year-long search for her beloved missing dog.
Janet Mihalyfi, 39, of Georgetown has hired psychics and private investigators, posted thousands of fliers, installed cameras in the woods and put out dog food at spots where the Rottweiler mix has reportedly been spotted.
Mihalyfi lost 5-year-old Havoc on Nov. 9, 2013, after she took him and her other dog off their leashes during a run in a wooded area. Just then, a deer bolted by and both dogs gave chase.
She hasn't seen Havoc since.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Peter Pan and Wendy, 7-year-old Chihuahua mixes living at the Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) in Milpitas, California.
This bonded pair were found wandering the streets together in very poor condition. Not only were they unkempt from life on the streets, but they came to the shelter painfully shy and fearful of the world around them.
