Latte, Our Best Friend
Born in 1996, Latte is a red-nosed American Pitbull Terrier. Originally adopted as our office guard dog, she was quickly promoted to blood donor. She had a blood type which is transfusable to all dogs of differing blood types. Latte saved numerous dogs in their desperate time of need.
We at Weston Road Animal Hospital as well as the Strauss family were deeply saddened by the loss. Latte will be sorely missed by us and all those who were lucky enough to be touched by her presence.
A sincere thank you from those who were saved by your blood transfusions.
