Recently I made an annoucement concerning the Milk-Bone contest finalists, two of which were Dogsters. One of them is Wyatt, a very handsome Boxer, who made it into the top three. He is going to be featured on an upcoming Milk-Bone box, but even more important, he gives the gift of life.

That’s right, Wyatt is a canine blood donor. He’s a rescue dog who was adopted by Dr. Jacqueline Falke, as a veterinarian she knows the importance of blood donation.

Sometimes an injured dog needs blood, and a friend with a big heart. Meet Wyatt, Dr. Jacqueline Falke’s boxer, a rescue dog who’s a canine blood donor.

“Being a veterinarian I know how important blood and plasma is in medical emergencies. So I really want to make sure that any pet owner or any pet has that available to them if they need it,” said Dr. Jacqueline Falke, veterinarian.

Dr. Falke works at the Everhart Animal Hospital in Brooklyn. She recently entered Wyatt in a nationwide contest: a search to become the face of Milk Bone. Wyatt’s good deeds helped him come in third. He also is raising the awareness of canine blood donations.

At Everhart, Wyatt is a superstar.

Wyatt has donated enough blood to save the lives of more than 50 dogs. I think he’s a superstar in everyone’s eyes, dogs and humans.

We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this special boy, can’t wait to see his face on a Milk-Bone box. He has more than earned that honor.
