The doctors thought the boy would not survive, but the dog brought him back to life!

In a car accident, a 6-year-old boy had broken bones and a severely injured brain, doctors gave him very little chance of recovery, but then a golden retriever appeared …

Caleb Howard was only six years old, driving carefree with his parents in the car, but that day was not like any other. A car accident interrupted his carelessness. His broken-hearted parents watched as their son almost turned into a plant, leaving only a motionless shadow of the cheerful boy.

He underwent several surgeries to get his bones back in place, but he also needed to get his brain back to normal, and with such injuries it is difficult to predict the outcome.

Doctors have openly told parents that the chances of recovery are very slim. One day, they suggested to desperate parents to try a therapy dog. He was awarded a golden retriever named Colonel.

In a very emotional video, you will see Caleb at the beginning of the therapy and how his functions return through socializing with the dog.

The animal somehow managed to activate the awakening of the boy’s brain, and that was the most important thing in his journey to an amazing recovery. Already after a month of intense socializing, great progress in health was seen.

Among the first sentences he uttered was this: “I think he loves me very much.” Doctors say this is a great example of how much therapeutic dogs can be necessary in a patient’s recovery.
