Lassie, saving lives 10 generations later

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Ten generations after the beloved, original TV collie Lassie hit the airwaves, a descendant, also named Lassie, is promoting a rescue mission.

The collie is saving lives as an ambassador for “Save Them All” and encouraging adoptions to save lives of shelter animals through the Best Friends Animal Society.

“We work with other animal rescues and shelters across the country to create no-kill programming,” said Jamie Rubin of Best Friends Animal Society.

Rubin also talked about ways you can keep animals safe in the summer.

“Certain dogs are prone to heat stroke and have a tougher time outside,” said Rubin. “They are going to overheat faster than us because they pant and can’t sweat like us.”

Some tips to keep your dog safe are: providing fresh, cool water; exercise in the morning or evening; and awareness of the temperature of what your pet walks on. Also, never leave your pet in a parked car.

We love each other and yet we annoy each other," said Lewis. The pair was quite the comedic duo on the hit HBO show.
