After Tim Buckner adopted Banjo last year, he seemed to be trying to tell his owner something. The dog came up to Buckner and pawed at a wart-like spot on his arm, even scraping it off. A few weeks later, the growth reappeared — and Banjo scraped it off again. That prompted Buckner to seek medical help.

Buckner credits his rescue dog with sounding the alarm about the spot and letting him know that something wasn’t right. — Read it at People Pets
