Kim Still got into nursing four years ago to help people.

“I could have never guessed the connection that you develop with some people when you take care of them,” Still told WSB-TV. “They just totally changed my life.”

Still said that she felt an instant connection with her patient when they first met. Her patient was terminally ill and told Still that she was worried about what would happen to her dog, Jax, once she passed away.

“She didn’t have any kids. She didn’t have any family close by. So all she really had was this dog,” Still told WSB-TV.

After the woman passed away, the family told Still that they had given Jax to a shelter.

“I was very worried that he was not going to be given a good chance and possibly be put down if he didn’t get out of the shelter,” Still said.

That’s when Still decided to go to the shelter to adopt Jax.

“I am never going to get rid of him. He is so sweet. He is one of the most loving dogs ever,” Still said.

This is an amazing story and Still is truly a hero for saving Jax!
