Effie, the Doctor of All Dogs
Effie’s animal rescue story isn’t like the others on this list. A hound mix, Effie belongs to Lisa Hulber, who adopted the dog after working with the Last Day Dog Rescue organization in Michigan. What’s astounding about Effie’s story is that Hulber claims that Effie is the one who first detected a tumor in her breast, one that a mammogram initially missed. Since detecting her cancer, Effie has been through Hulber’s side through her double mastectomy and chemotherapy.
