This Heartwarming Story About A Rescue Dog Who Safeguards A Severely Ill Child Will Give You All The Feels.

Dogs are more than just cuddly playful friends. For Leo, his dog Henry is his guardian angel. Outside of being the little boy’s best friend, Henry serves as a medical alarm when Leo is about to have a seizure.

Leo had a brain aneurism when he was three. The prognosis was not encouraging as the youngster would have to endure a lifetime of strokes and seizures. While in the hospital, Leo received visits from volunteer dogs from an organization called Love On 4 Paws. The “canine therapists” gave Leo the boost he needed to make a quick recovery.

When Leo’s mom, Yasmine saw the positive result the tail-wagging volunteers had on her son, she promised Leo his own companion. Henry was rescued from a shelter, where he was on a kill list. He has the unique ability to detect the onset of a seizure by picking up the special scent the human body emits.
