When I Saw How This Dog Helps A Little Girl Get Around Her School, I Teared Up
Not long ago, 11-year-old Bella Burton was clinging to crutches. The little girl was born with Morquio syndrome, a rare genetic condition that affects bone growth and greatly limits mobility. After numerous surgeries and myriad therapies, she still struggled to walk without her crutches or a wheelchair.
But all that changed after Bella met George — a 131-pound really great dane who’s not only her service dog, but also her best friend.
It’s so inspiring to see how strong and brave Bella is, and what a gentle, caring giant she has for a friend.
