The Heart-Warming Story of a Boy and His Dog (Grab the Tissues!)

Owen was born with Schwartz Jampel Syndrome, a rare disease that causes every muscle in his body to tense up. One day, he found a three-legged friend who helped him relax for the first time. Such a special story that really sticks with you--well worth the watch!

People say that animals don't know love or can be protective. This video shows it that they indeed do and are. This little guy and this pup deserve each other. Report

Yay Anatolian Shepherd Dogs! My last service dog (recently retired) and current prospect are both Anatolians; wonderful dogs. I love this story, heard it many years ago from the Anatolian crowd and it warms my heart every time. My young ASD is great for helping me get out and walk! She also keeps me from falling when walking. My older girl can't keep up anymore so I get extra walks now, first slow (a good warm up) and then fast with my 2 yr old pup! Report
