“She’s a brave girl that saved her family and I don’t understand how nobody would want a dog like that,” Animal Control Officer Loretta Adams told CBS DFW. “She could potentially save your life”

Adams is hoping they won’t have to euthanize Snickers, but they may have no choice.

“We’ll be forced to do what we have to do,” she said.
