Rescue Dog Helps Woman Overcome Trauma
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, a black retriever mix.
Tracy suffered multiple injuries after falling off a horse in 2013.
The accident confined her to a wheelchair and and she facing months of painful, grueling, rehabilitation.
Eventually, the rehabilitation to heal her broken body inspired her to adopt a special needs dog from a shelter.
Jack suffered serious injuries after a car struck him in Yakima in 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.
When Tracy saw Jack there she immediately knew he was the perfect rescue 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 adopting a dog often transforms people’s lives.
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.
