Summary "This book tells the amazing true story of one astonishing little boy and the very special dog who has changed his life forever. On a bitterly cold night in January 2012, Haatchi the dog was hit over the head and abandoned on a railway line in London, England, to be hit by a train. Somehow, the puppy survived the blood loss from his partially severed leg and rear tail and managed to crawl away to safety. Fortunately, Haatchi was rescued, although vets couldn't save his leg and tail. He came to the attention of Colleen Drummond and Will Howkins, who aren't just kind-hearted dog-lovers. They are also the dad and stepmother of Owen (known to his family as Little B for 'little buddy'). Owen, now aged eight, has an extremely rare genetic disorder which causes his muscles to permanently tense. Largely confined to a wheelchair, Owen was withdrawn and anxious and found it difficult to make friends. But when the little boy awoke the morning after Haatchi arrived, he immediately fell in love with the severely disabled rescue animal who would, in turn, rescue him"-- Provided by publisher.
