A boy who is missing a leg and a dog that is missing a paw become best friends

A boy lost his right leg due to an infection a few years ago. With the help of his parents, he was able to obtain a golden retriever that lacked the right front paw.

The boy’s therapist came across a Facebook post about a dog without a paw. They were looking for a loving home. The therapist contacted the breeder and informed her of a patient with a similar specialty.

«We wanted the puppy to go to someone who also has a leg difference,» she explained.

«It was love at first sight,» the boy’s father recalls. The kids laughed, played with Marvel, and rolled around on the floor with her.

According to the boy’s mother, the appearance of the dog in the family increased her son’s activity, which had a direct impact on the development of his physical abilities.

«It allows him to tell other kids, ‘Oh, she doesn’t have enough paws, she looks like me.'» And it gives him a voice to defend himself,'» the woman explained.

There’s no doubt that their unique friendship will continue to grow. Marvel currently moves on three legs, but she will be able to use a wheelchair or prosthesis if necessary.
