TULSA, Oklahoma -

A dog named Platty doesn't have a lot of time left, but thanks to the kindness of some animal rescuers he is spending his last days with a lot of love and attention.

The 10-year-old golden retriever was taken to Tulsa Animal welfare with an inoperable growth and was scheduled to be euthanized.
