“When I was a little kid, I had a dog die in my arms after it got hit by a car,” Art Shaul told Tampa Bay’s WFTS. “That’s what got me going.”

Now retired from a sales career, Shaul, 69, devotes his time and money to dog rescue, trying to relocate pups in need before they end up at a shelter.

Just recently, Shaul and a friend rescued a pregnant momma dog in Kentucky. Coralina, a malnourished red-tick hound that vets put at between 8 and 10 years old, had been pushed out of a car, dumped at the roadside. They were in Shaul’s minivan when the big moment came!

The first puppy was born just as they crossed the state line into Florida.

“I was a little shocked. I was scared and thrilled at the same time,” said Shaul. “We had a knife and had to use that to cut the umbilical cords.”

Six puppies were born. Art found homes for all of them.

And Coralina. She went to a family, too.

“Coralina will be spoiled rotten” said Shaul. “And after what happened to her, she deserves it.”
