There are reasons why we meet certain people in life. Some of them come into our lives to help us discover or unearth our true potential. Others bring with them lessons that hurt at first, but become nuggets of wisdom later on. There are also those whose arrivals feel like the Universe used all its forces to make it happen.
A serendipitous meeting
This is what everyone felt when Jonny met Xena, an emaciated dog. Jonny’s doctors diagnosed him with autism when he was still young.
New experiences or anything unfamiliar would freak Jonny out. He wasn’t keen on getting to know the world around him. People would often see him being all quiet and keeping to himself. The only time he learned to interact with others was when he met Xena.
The poor thing was on the brink of death when she was rescued by the police. As it turns out, her previous owners abused and starved her. She would have been dead if the police hadn’t found her.
Linda, Jonny’s mom, caught wind of Xena’s story. She was amazed by the furry fighter, so she decided to introduce the pup to Jonny. When she learned that Xena would be appearing at a local fundraiser, she made her family would be at the event to meet the courageous pup.
The young boy’s eyes lit up when he saw the pooch. He rushed to where she was and greeted her. It was at that moment that Linda realized there was no way Jonny was leaving the event without Xena.
She immediately processed all the necessary papers so they could take Xena home. They were elated when they received information that they passed the trial period, and the pup was officially theirs. Since then, Jonny and Xena had been by each other’s side and helping each other heal from wounds they don’t speak of. Know more about their wonderful story in the video below:
