Today, we would like to share a story with you about how an 8-year-old boy named Jonny’s friendship with a dog named Xena was truly a blessing in disguise for both.
Xena was found in Georgia, and rescuers from Dekalb Animal Services were immediately informed. Hareably the dog was “severely malnourished” and weighed only 4 pounds (approximately 1.8 kgs) when she was brought into the shelter. Xena’s fighting will power, along with the extensive care that she received from the shelter, helped her recover as quickly as ever. In fact, looking at her fast recovery, she was even given the name “Xena, the Warrior Puppy.”
Jonny is an 8-year-old boy who is autistic from a very young age. Due to his autism, he is uncomfortable with speaking with others and does not mix up with people easily. For a conversation, his comfort zone lies within his family members.
How Jonny and Xena Met
Jonny’s parents read about Xena in a newspaper and decided instantaneously that it would be a good idea for the family to drop Xena a visit. Unlike Jonny’s usual behavior regarding communication, he mixed up with Xena in no time. At that moment, his parents decided that they were going to adopt Xena and take her home with them.
Jonny and Xena’s Friendship
Within no time, Jonny and Xena became the best of friends. Xena’s conditions continued to improve, and Jonny became more social and happier. Together, they brought a smile on each other’s face.
With such a touching story, it makes us rethink about every action we take. Truly, this has taught us how happiness likes in immaterialistic things rather than products that are bought off the shelf.
