When he was only a tiny puppy, Haatchi was cruelly tied to a railroad line in North London. He was hit by an oncoming train. His tail was severed and his rear leg was extremely damaged in the tragic accident. But The Anatolian Shepherd had a very strong will to live. He crawled away from the train station and hid for days before he was finally rescued.
Sadly, even though Haatchi was rescued and his wounds were treated, Haatchi still lost his leg and his tail due to infection. He had been alone for several days, but he sure was a fighter. He never gave up and when he was rescued, his rescuers could see the relief on his face.
Meanwhile, 9-year-old Owen, also lovingly called Little B, was suffering from Schwartz-Jampel. This rare genetic order causes his muscles to tense permanently. It confines him to a wheelchair and also impairs his eyesight. Owen also suffered from high anxiety and was socially withdrawn because of it. It was hard for him to make friends.
But that’s when Haatchi came into his life. The rescued dog and the little boy immediately formed an unbreakable bond. They sensed that the other was different and could relate to each other. Now they have an unbreakable bond. Their friendship has ended up inspiring many people and the health of both Little B and Haatchi has improved due to the emotional support they give each other.
