(KOTV) A 12-year-old girl is fighting two battles – one with Leukemia and the other over the loss of her beloved therapy dog, Tank.
Shelby Shuffitt and her grandfather, Junior Gray, are best buds – growing even closer after Shelby was diagnosed with leukemia in May.
“Me and papa have our days out on Saturdays,” she said. “And we saw Tank, and we looked at each other and we said, ‘We got to have him.’”
But, two weeks ago, they could hear Tank barking then crying.
“The first thing Shelby and I saw was the arrow sticking straight out from between his eyes,” Gray said.
