A shelter dog from Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is being hailed a hero for donating blood to an anemic puppy.

The non-profit organization, Louisiana SPCA, shared the story of the puppy and the hero dog on Friday, June 28 on TikTok.

They shared that they found a puppy heavily coated in fleas, which they named Dragon Fruit, abandoned in a bush at an apartment complex.

Other than being covered in fleas, Dragon Fruit was also anemic. And that’s when Scout, a two-year-old Pit Bull, came to Dragon Fruit’s rescue.

“Meet our hero, Scout,” the animal shelter wrote on the video’s caption with a montage of Dragon Fruit receiving Scout’s blood and the animal shelter staff hugging Scout for being the goodest boy.

“He donated several bags of blood, and now the puppy safely rests in foster care until ready for adoption,” Louisiana SPCA wrote.

In the video that the Louisiana SPCA shared on TikTok, Scout’s kennel has a sign that read, “Certified Super Dog!! I donated blood!”

Scout and Dragon Fruit’s story has since gone viral and garnered almost 1 million likes on the social media platform.

Now, Scout, like the hero that he is, is now looking for his own hero to come and give him a forever home.

According to Scout’s adoption page, he has “a heart full of love and a tail that won’t stop wagging”.

He is described to be the friendliest, most loving dog and has a knack for making you feel like you’re his best friend.

“So, why should you adopt me? Well, because everyone needs a Scout in their life. I’m ready to be your faithful friend, your ray of sunshine, and your forever companion, Scout’s adoption page read.
