Disabled Dog and Young Girl BFFs

By -

A disabled Great Dane has found a rescuer in 18-month-old Jennie who has clearly become BFFs.

In Niagra Falls, a fairy tale story of special needs doggy meets a very special friend.  The two are inseparable and when apart are always checking to make sure the other is close by.

But watch the video to understand the whole story of these two friends.

How Echo (Great Dane) came to the family:

Dwyer rescued Echo from Louisiana when she was a puppy. Echo’s owner, because of the dog’s disabilities, no longer wished to care for her and was preparing to have her euthanized.

“She was an abuse case. She was 12 weeks old, 15 pounds underweight, and had a belly full of rocks. We took her to the vet, and he said this is very common in dogs that don’t get fed that are neglected. They develop Pica (a disorder characterized by an appetite for substances that are largely non-nutritive) and she was literally trying to eat everything. She was literally pooping out rocks,” Dwyer said.

All of this occurred about 2-1/2 years before Jennie arrived.
