Canine hero in need of life-saving surgery

ROCKLIN, CA- He may look like an ordinary dog, but Koa is much more than a fun- loving, furry companion. His keen senses give him the ability to sniff out medical emergencies and now he is in a race against time as he faces one of his own.

The 4-year old Airedale has brought joy to the Videll home. From trips to the lake, to long walks at the park, his spunky personality and warm nature have made him part of the family. “He’s like one of my kids, except he’s fuzzy,“ said Michelle Videll.

Recently, the Videll’s received devastating news. Koa is battling congestive heart failure and is in desperate need of a pacemaker. The family has poured over a thousand dollars into treatment, but due to tough economic times they are sadly running out of hope. “It’s a nightmare, it’s like not being able to care for one of my children, it’s heartbreaking,” said Bill Videll.

The news is especially difficult for Bill and Michelle’s son.

TiAndra Davis was slated to appear in court along with her attorney at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, but neither showed. Davis was not required to attend the arraignment, and her attorney decided not to show in her stead, although able to do so under the law.

The Sacramento County prosecutor said the arraignment will now likely be pushed back.
