LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Kentucky Humane Society now $50,000 more to spend thanks to one of their veterinarians.

Dr. Emily Bewley submitted a video for the Petco Foundation's Holiday Wishes Campaign hoping to win the money for the humane society ... and she did!

Dr. Bewley's winning video shows how a homeless puppy named Lego made her a better vet. Lego was born with a severe birth defect and she knew without surgery he would die.

"I had his heart in my hand during surgery and I'm just thinking this isn't going to work," Dr. Bewley said. "His heart stopped three times and I just kept thinking this dog can't survive this. This is too much for any animal. And he did. He kept coming back every time we brought him back so it was really amazing."

Dr. Bewley says this money will help her learn more procedures to help more animals who come into the shelter.
