A doggy reunion between a canine and the pooch it saved through a blood donation has taken place.

BBC News reports that Cocker spaniel Bentley nearly died after eating rat poison, but survived after receiving a blood transfusion from Alex the greyhound. Their reunion was made possible by Leicestershire-based Pet Blood Bank UK, the only charity that provides a canine blood bank service for vets across the country. You can see this story in full on BBC Inside Out East Midlands at 19:30 GMT on Monday on BBC One, or via iPlayer for 30 days afterwards.
