With such a strong will to live, Shuman overcame incredible odds to survive an unimaginable ordeal. The story of this senior Shih Tzu mix starts on Friday, March 6th in rural Bryan County, Georgia. Two young boys were fishing when they saw a small dog in the middle of a lake. They ran to their grandfather to tell him about the dog. The dog kept swimming in circles and didn't seem to be able to get out. The grandfather called his wife who happened to work for Bryan County. She immediately called animal control, and they responded quickly. Animal Control and the grandfather used a boat to rescue the poor little dog in distress. That dog is Shuman.
