A true story about Lucky, a little puppy that only Christy Gardner, an Army Veteran who has two prosthetic legs, saw potential in. He was a little puppy born with an unusual front leg. Others saw him with a flaw; Christy saw him with lots of love to give. The story of Lucky is that of a special puppy with an incredible personality and a special mission. Who knows what his fate would have been if Christy had not given him a helping hand?Christy immediately felt a connection with him. Read how Christy and her service dog, Moxie, took Lucky into their home. He will warm your heart and put a smile on your face. Moxie teaches Lucky that he can do things like other puppies can, he just has to figure out his own way. This story is about anti-bullying, and that being different is ok, and to never, never give up…happy trails!
