Freshy the pit bull has only minutes to live. The unfortunate canine has wound up in a crowded animal shelter in Brooklyn, New York, and he’s set to be put down at 5:00 p.m. But with the clock ticking down, animal rescuer Alana Guerrini races from her home in New Jersey in a desperate bid to save the poor pooch.

It had once been very different for Freshy. Indeed, before he ended up in the shelter, the pit bull had lived a very happy life. The two-year-old dog had “spent all of his life with a family with four children, two other dogs – one small, one big – and a cat,” Guerrini told The Dodo.

What’s more, Guerrini noted that Freshy had the ideal personality for a family dog; the pooch was great with his human brothers and sisters, and he got along with the other animals too. In fact, the Dodo described him as, “Gentle and affectionate and playful.”
