Words cannot do this story justice in terms of how special and heartwarming it is, but I’ll try. Bella, a 10-year-old girl, was born with Morquio Syndrome, a rare genetic disease that can affect a child’s bones. Because of the disease, Bella was unable to walk on her own. . . until one day when Bella met George. Then, everything changed.
George, a Great Dane, was just one of the many dogs being trained by Service Dog Project, Inc., a non-profit organization that specializes in raising and training Great Danes to be used as service dogs for “individuals who have severe balance and mobility limitations.” The bond between Bella and George was instant, and soon Bella was able to walk around with the help of George. From escorting Bella to her classes at school to being her constant companion, George is always there for Bella, no matter what.
As David Muir sums it up best, George is “one really great Dane.”
