One very special Staffordshire bull terrier who has been a very good boy can expect a visit from Santa Claus this Christmas after changing his new owner’s life.
Former factory operative Rachel Bowles didn’t leave the house for a year after her spinal cord was damaged during routine surgery for a trapped nerve in her arm in March 2016 – leaving her in a wheelchair and unable to walk.
But since rehoming two-year-old Hunter from Blue Cross in April this year, Rachel said she and her husband Jeff have gained a best friend and motivator.
Rachel says: “He’s my best friend during the day, someone to stroke and talk to and keep me company and my husband’s best friend when he gets home from work. They are inseparable.”
