Eric was overweight and very sick.  One of his doctors told him that his unhealthy lifestyle would be the death of him, and for whatever reason, he decided to adopt a rescued dog.  Well, it didn’t take very long for Eric to realize that he may have thought that he was rescuing a dog that day, however it was that very dog that ended up rescuing him.  What a beautiful story.


Eric & Peety (from Humane Society Silicon Valley)Eric weighed over 300 pounds, had type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and his doctor told him he would be dead in 5 years unless he changed. They suggested a dog. Eric went to the Humane Society Silicon Valley and said he wanted an obese, middle-aged dog, so they would have something in common. What happened next transformed their lives.
