Boy with amputated leg becomes best friend of puppy with missing paw

 There is nothing more precious than a boy's bond with his dog. Because it is a caring and faithful friend and playmate, a pet can improve a child's life. 

A boy and his new Golden Retriever puppy have a special affinity because they share something extraordinary. 

Marvel, the dog, was born with a missing right front paw. 

Some people may be unwilling to accept a disabled pet. Marvel's breeder, on the other hand, was confident that someone out there would notice the puppy's beauty - possibly someone who had gone through the same ordeal. 

“We wanted the dog to find a home with someone who has a comparable physical impairment,” Rolling Oaks Goldens owner Barb Felt told WCCO.

It turned out that the ideal candidate for Marvel was right around the corner. 

Paxton Williams, a 7-year-old kid from Waconia, Minnesota, was born prematurely and suffered from a leg infection. Doctors removed his foot three years ago and replaced it with a prosthetic so he could walk better. 

The family thought it was fate when they learned about the puppy with only three paws looking for a home. 

Marvel was delivered to their home, and while all of the children adored the puppy, Paxton developed a very special bond with him. The commonality was instantly recognized by the young youngster. 

Paxton's father, Blaine Williams, told WCCO, "It's as if they knew they were special."

Both are lacking limbs, but it doesn't stop them. 

They frequently run around and play together. Their steps may be a little different, but they still move with a carefree demeanor. 

Paxton has learnt to embrace his own uniqueness through the puppy, who is similar to him. 

“It provides him the opportunity to inform the youngsters that the dog is just like him, and it also gives him a voice to stand up for himself,” his mother Stephanie explained. 

What a lovely friendship. It's very lovely that these two have discovered each other and built such a strong friendship.
