Description


Lazarus is a touching reminder of how life should never be taken for granted. She is a Pitbull Terrier who was impounded and euthanized. She miraculously survived euthanasia. “Lazarus” has become an ambassador for death row animals everywhere winning the hearts of everyone she meets. Visiting schools and nursing homes, she spreads her own special brand of contagious joy, effortlessly embodying the character traits we all strive to master. She is the subject of an upcoming book.

She is a survivor through and through, coming back from a tumor in her spleen, three cruciate surgeries, an intestinal blockage, accidental poisoning, and now, surviving osteosarcoma and a leg amputation. At 13 yrs old, she still is still teaching people the art of forgiveness, unconditional love and how to live life to it's fullest.
