Like most of the people who read this blog, I’ve had multiple dogs in my life. While we’ve loved all of them, many of us can point to one particular dog that helped us transition through a difficult time.
For Tracy Campion, that dog is Jack.
After falling off a horse in 2013, Tracy suffered multiple injuries and was confined to a wheelchair and facing months of painful, grueling, rehabilitation. As she worked to heal her broken body, she was inspired to adopt a special needs dog from a shelter.
Jack was a black Labrador Retriever mix that had been hit by a car in Yakima in February of 2015. If he stayed in Yakima, Jack would probably have been euthanized, but fortunately the Seattle Humane Society took him in and gave him the medical care he needed. Jack lost both an eye and a leg due to the severity of his injuries, and he was placed in a foster home while he healed.
Tracy and Jack must have been fated to be together as she met him literally a few minutes after his foster moms returned him back to Seattle Humane to be adopted. Tracy immediately knew that Jack was the perfect dog for her, and for the last 2 years, they filed each other’s lives with joy and appreciation.
A company called Mutual Rescue™ made a movie about their unique, symbiotic relationship. Founded in 2015, Mutual Rescue’s mission is to show how people’s lives are often dramatically transformed in positive ways after adopting a dog.
Its film about Tracy and Jack, which is called, appropriately, “Tracy and Jack,” will premier online on Vimeo tomorrow. If you want to watch this extraordinary story, click here to register on the Mutual Rescue site to get the code to access the movie tomorrow.
