Ed Gernon had his work cut out for him when he adopted Rex, a German shepherd mix. Rex lived on the streets for years, depending on his aggressive, hunting abilities to fight other dogs and kill cats. Everything changed one year ago when Gernon and Rex were out for a walk.
The canine stopped and would not leave a tiny bird with no feathers, covered in ants. The California resident took the sick hummingbird home and fed her formula every 15 minutes. Hummer is now healthy; she has learned how to fly with the help of Gernon and a hair dryer. All it took was a miniature bird to turn Rex into a softie.
