A girl named Bella Burton was already affected by Morquio Syndrome at birth. It is an uncommon, fatal hereditary condition that affects a person’s growth.
Burton’s mobility is restricted by his illness. Fortunately, Burton no longer needs to be concerned about that. She always has George the Great Dane to assist her.
Burton received assistance from the gentle giant after undergoing nine surgeries. She is unable to walk without the assistance of a wheelchair or crutches. George was the only one who taught her to walk on her own two feet. When she has to move, she relies on him, and he ensures she doesn’t slip or fall.
Burton is more active now and can enjoy a regular life like other children, and that is because George is present. Her 131-pound best companion is constantly there to assist her, so she no longer needs crutches, walkers, or wheelchairs to do that. Burton has also showed significant improvement in comparison to other treatments she has had.
It is difficult to see that Burton is still living with a life-threatening illness. This is because the girl is usually smiling when she is playing in the park, shopping, or riding a bicycle.
Burton formerly remained indoors with crutches in each hand. Now, she is free to run outside with her pals and attend school.
American Kennel Club (AKC) acknowledged George’s influence on Burton’s life. They presented him with the Award for Canine Excellence in recognition of his efforts to restore Burton’s smile and mobility.
George does his tasks regularly. He understands his role in Burton’s life and strives to always be there for her.
Thank you, George, for doing this for your human owner. She loves you for it and we adore you even more for the amazing job that you are doing.
