DULUTH — In aviation circles, the term "dogfighting" usually conjures images of pilots engaged in close and often deadly mid-air combat. But Duluth-based Cirrus Aircraft is encouraging its clients to consider a different form of dogfighting, in the sense of fighting for dogs' survival by transporting animals slated to be euthanized in one place to another location where loving homes await.

Cirrus recently provided a fueled new SR22 G6 turboprop to model and actor Aaron O'Connell, star of "The Haves and the Have Nots" and "Love Accidentally," to help him fly a dog to safety in California. O'Connell has now flown more than 50 missions as a volunteer for a nonprofit called Pilots N Paws.
