Luckily enough Animal Rights Activists could catch the truck in time to see it filled with hundreds of dogs inhumanly piled up above one another.
‘Miracle’ was one of the hundred dogs rescued and sent to Great Britain where Amanda Leask took on the responsibility of helping Miracle begin a new journey. Amanda a proud mom to over 40 rescues has won numerous awards for her activities., but she never knew how profound the effect of this new mixed breed rescue would be in her life.
When she went up the podium of Britain’s Got Talent with 4 of her dogs, people expected tricks but not a heartwarming story behind the lead dog’s performance. Turn out that Miracle is not just a rescued dog but is also a great therapy dog.
Amanda’s son Kyle Leask is suffering from Cerebral Palsy and is severely autistic. However, Miracle seems to be very tuned to Kyle and what he needs. In the words of Amanda, Kyle and Miracle find solace in each other’s company due to their troubled life.
