Boy With a Rare Disease Found a Best Friend in an Abused Tail-less Dog With Only Three Legs.

Owen and Haatchi may seem like your typical boy and dog, but their friendship? It seems sent from above.

A A A

Life can sometimes be unfair, throwing heartbreaking things at us like a physical disability, a family heartbreak, and a career meltdown. It tends to keep us in the dark and shy us away from society, as we are afraid to be rejected. But more often than not, a spark of hope almost always comes our way, giving light to our problems. This is what exactly happened to best friends, Owen and Haatchi.

Owen is a 9 year old boy from England, who was diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disorder called Schwartz-Jampel syndrome. His disorder causes him to look like a little bodybuilder who constantly experiences muscle contractions and severe muscle pains. He has been bound to a wheelchair, resulting in feelings of insecurity and loneliness.

Haatchi is a poor dog who was tied to the train tracks and left to die. He was rescued by the railway personnel but they had to amputate his tail and one leg due to severe injury. He was also scheduled to be euthanized, but he survived well after the surgery.

When Owen’s stepmom saw the picture of Haatchi on Facebook she felt like this could be the answer to Owen’s loneliness, so they adopted him, and Owen’s condition indeed improved!

The two pained souls formed an incredible bond, probably because they understood what each other has gone through. Eventually, Owen’s parents decided to sign the ‘best friends’ to dog shows, and they kept winning multiple awards. They even won the popular Crufts “Friends For Life Award” among all owner-dog tandems across the UK. This brought Owen a surge of confidence, and Haatchi a warm home.
