This is Lucas Hembree and his dog. These two have formed a unique relationship. You will find the story after the jump.

 

The 4-year-old boy from East Tennessee has a rare disease, Sanfilippo syndrome, which affects his entire body. This illness can’t be cured or treated. According to doctors, Lucas will be in a vegetative state within 5 years.His parents wished to get a service dog to help their child with his daily challenges, but this $14,000 idea was not affordable. Belgian Malanois Juno, rescued from a dog shelter days before being euthanized, became a literal shoulder for Lucas to lean on. Their relationship is exceptional. The little boy and the dog help each other in ways that only they fully understand.

The comment about picture 18 is correct. I know this family and this gorgeous little boy, my daughter is suffering the same illness and fate! Wish we all had a Juno to keep our kiddos happy like she does for little Lucas. They both are amazing!!

Sometimes life is so cruel that it hurts. I could rationalize it and have done so, but it still hurts.
