A Goldendoodle who lost her leg in a hit-and-run accident a year and a half ago, has had a second chance at life and she’s using it to help others. Fittingly named Hope, this miracle pup isn’t letting her disability slow her down as she helps children with autism.
Since her recovery, Hope has become a therapy dog in Arizona and she frequently works with at-risk individuals and pays visits to patients at local hospitals in her hometown. She is an all-around wonder dog who aims to help as many people as she can.
This big-hearted canine is incredibly effective at her job and even helped one boy named Lucius go from being unable to speak to being able to speak complete phrases. The organization that matched Lucius with Hope, called Pawsitive Friendships says that her affect on Lucius was seen immediately as the boy was finally able to get through a 50-minute session without a meltdown.
This story is yet another reminder of how special our bond is with our canine friends. To see the rest of this incredible story watch the video below.
