This story of friendship and love will get you right in the feels.
A 7 year-old boy named Owen Howkins was born with a condition that makes him unique. Owen has Schwartz-Jampel syndrome, a disease that leaves his muscles constantly tense. Because of his condition he was afraid to interact with others. Owen was very shy of strangers
His condition made his muscles permanently tense. He was nervous and he didn’t like to talk to people.
He was constantly in pain
But then, something miraculous happened. He met Haatchi and everything changed
When Haatchi was a puppy, he was found tied to railroad tracks. One of his legs was terribly mangled, so it had to be amputated
The RSPCA tried to find him a home, but they didn’t have any luck. Then Haatchi met Owen
In that moment, something incredible happened. The two unique souls bonded, they were instant friends
Now, Haatchi is so happy, his little stump of a tail won’t stop wagging
And Owen is changed, too. He is so much happier and he has a constant companion
Now, he can even talk to people. He isn’t afraid any more
