While he was 2 year old this tragedy happened that this kid fell into the hot bath water and burns over 98% of his body resulting in multiple surgeries per year ever since! Now Owen is 10 year old, and this fourth grade had both of his legs amputated below the knees in June and February of this year!
After the amputations one of Owen’s teachers showed him a quadruple amputee dog name Chi Chi on online video and then on Owen become one of the people following this therapy dog online. Chi-Chi a 3 year old golden retriever was adopted by Elizabeth Howel from South Korea in 2016. This dog came to their house as a quadruple amputee after enduring severe abuse and now serves as a therapy dog with large online followers!
Howell learned about Owen following Chi Chi online,had coordinated with acquaintances of the Mahan’s in Indiana to fly Owen and his mom to Phoenix to spend a weekend with Chi Chi! This was a real surprise for them and they really had some good time together. Many got inspired by their story had sent cards of supports that Owen received during the weekend in Arizona!!
