This is the story of an 11-year-old girl Bella and her Great Dane George. Bella was diagnosed with an incurable rare genetic disease called Morquio Syndrome when she was 2 1/2 years old. The disease occurs in an estimated 1 in 200,000 births worldwide. It attacks her healthy body growth and as a result she is short-statured and it also affected her hips and feet. Bella has always had problems doing things like running, riding bikes or even walking. She could only get around with crutches or a Wheelchair.

All that changed when she met George , a 131 pound great Dane service Dog. George is same height as Bella but weighs almost thrice as 43 pound Bella. As a result of this, Bella can lean of George like a crutch.

I lean on him like a crutch, He helps me walk. If I fall, I tell him ‘Brace! which means he will stand and won’t even budge and I can pull myself up

George now accompanies Bella everywhere she goes from school to gym to the park. He knows all about her classes. While she’s in a class, he’ll take a nap. When she will go for Lunch, he will rest at her feet. When she rides a sledge, he chases her downhill

“He knows what to do,” Bella said. “He knows where all my classes are.”

With George by his side, Bella has been able to all those things other kids in her class do. They have now become best friends and stay by each other’s side throughout the day.
