Some things are just between a boy and his dog. Such is the case for Owen and his Anatolian Shepard named Haatchi, stars of the short film “A Boy and His Dog.”
Upon meeting, the two immediately developed a strong bond that has helped them cope with their disabilities together: Owen has Schwartz-Jampel syndrome, which causes his muscles to be tensed and cramped, and Haatchi lost one of his legs in a train accident in 2012. When Owen’s parents decided to adopt Haatchi, they had no idea how much he would change their lives. Now, Owen and Haatchi are more confident and happy in their everyday lives, and prove that a little bit a love can go a long way.
