A 7 year-old boy named Owen Howkins was born with a condition that makes him unique. Owen has Schwartz-Jampel syndrome, a disease that leaves his muscles constantly tense. Because of his condition he was afraid to interact with others. Haatchi was a lonely dog that faced death and abandonment. Together, though they make a pair that puts smiles on the faces of everyone they see.
Students at the University of Hertfordshire made a short film about the incredible bond between Owen and Haatchi. People loved their story so much, it has been made into a book, available on Amazon.
