Over the next few months, Bowe and a team of veterinarians nursed the sick dog back to health. He required an arsenal of medications, surgery and physical therapy, but as the days went on, the light came into his eyes. His hair started growing back, and he was able to walk again.
And better yet, he showed Bowe just how sweet-natured he really was — almost as if he were thanking her.
“He’s a super loving dog,” Bowe said. “If I sit down, he has his face right next to mine and leans in as if he’s giving me a hug."
