Check out the video (above) to see how a rescued terrier mix became a little girl's guardian angel.
After a family rescued an abandoned dog, Jack, from a dumpster, he became an important part of Maya Pieters' life.
Maya has a rare neurological disorder, which causes her to struggle with normal oral functions such as speech and swallowing, and she suffers from seizures as well, which Jack has helped with a lot.
Jack has saved Maya's life by warning the family when she has seizures, and he's become a friend and constant companion for Maya, who is often left out by other children.
He is truly a wonderful dog! We're so happy that both Jack and the Pieters family are able to be such positive influences in each others' lives.
