Pet Connection: Social networking helps sponsor, save springer in need

In January, a sporting-dog rescue group asked Lori-Lynn Clayton of San Angelo, Texas, to go look at a dog in her local shelter thought to be an English springer spaniel or Brittany. He was a springer, emaciated and near death. She struggled to get him released, battling shelter workers and then veterinarians who said it would be better to euthanize him.
