520    "#1 International Bestseller When Owen met Haatchi, the 
       lives of one adorable little boy and one great, big dog 
       were destined to change forever. Owen--known to his family
       as "little buddy" or "Little B"--has a rare genetic 
       disorder that leaves him largely confined to a wheelchair.
       Before being united with Haatchi, Little B was anxious and
       found it difficult to make friends. Haatchi--an adorable 
       Anatolian Shepherd puppy--was abused and left for dead on 
       railroad tracks. He was struck by an oncoming train, and 
       although his life was saved, his leg and tail were 
       partially severed. Haatchi was left massively disabled and
       totally dispirited. But kind-hearted Will and Colleen 
       Howkins, Little B's father and step-mother, decided to 
       introduce the big dog and the little boy to each other, 
       and an unbelievable bond was formed that transformed both 
       boy and dog in miraculous ways. Haatchi &Little B is the 
       true story of an astonishing little boy, a very special 
       dog, and the inspiring, inseparable pair that they make 
       together. "--|cProvided by publisher. 
520    "This book tells the amazing true story of one astonishing
       little boy and the very special dog who has changed his 
       life forever. On a bitterly cold night in January 2012, 
       Haatchi the dog was hit over the head and abandoned on a 
       railway line in London, England, to be hit by a train. 
       Somehow, the puppy survived the blood loss from his 
       partially severed leg and rear tail and managed to crawl 
       away to safety. Fortunately, Haatchi was rescued, although
       vets couldn't save his leg and tail. He came to the 
       attention of Colleen Drummond and Will Howkins, who aren't
       just kind-hearted dog-lovers. They are also the dad and 
       stepmother of Owen (known to his family as Little B for 
       'little buddy'). Owen, now aged eight, has an extremely 
       rare genetic disorder which causes his muscles to 
       permanently tense. Largely confined to a wheelchair, Owen 
       was withdrawn and anxious and found it difficult to make 
       friends. But when the little boy awoke the morning after 
       Haatchi arrived, he immediately fell in love with the 
       severely disabled rescue animal who would, in turn, rescue
       him"--|cProvided by publisher.
