SANTA FE — A heart transplant, tragedy and Facebook were all part of the plot uniting a rescued Alvin dog with an Arkansas boy with a new heart.

The dog, a pit bull-Labrador retriever mix named Scotch was flown Saturday to Jonesboro, Ark., to meet Gabe Leon, 11. Gabe’s mother, Melanie Leon, discovered Scotch on a Facebook page posted by the Santa Fe-based rescue group S.A.V.E. — Spay/neuter, Adoption, Volunteering, Education — Rescue Coalition.
