Giant Great Dane Sneaks Up On Little Girl In Hospital, But Look Closely At Dog’s Back

An 11-year-old girl named Bella, who has Morquio Syndrome, a rare genetic condition, was unable to walk for nine years despite multiple surgeries and therapy.

But her life took a remarkable turn when she got a Great Dane service dog named George. George, weighing 130 pounds, has been a game-changer for Bella. “George has helped improve Bella’s mobility and morale more than any other therapy she’s undergone,” says the article.

The Great Dane is part of the Service Dog Project (SDP), which provides specially trained dogs to people with mobility issues. George not only assists Bella in walking but also joins her in various activities, providing companionship and safety. Bella and George’s inspiring story has garnered global attention, and the American Kennel Club will honor George with an Award for Canine Excellence.
