You may want to grab a box of tissues because this story may make you tear up a bit.

According to Fox9 article, Christi  Smith, from Brooklyn Park, has worked with an animal rescue for several years.  A few months ago, they asked her to foster a Pit Bull named Gator.  She knew of the energetic dog and decided her mellow household wouldn't be the right fit for him.

Gator eventually found a foster home but was brought back and was set to be euthanized. It was at that point that Christi decided to take him in and renamed him TaterTot.  Little did she know that by saving Tater's life, he would turn around and return the favor.
