This unbelievable story proves that dogs really do have healing properties. At the age of seven, Caleb Howard of Huntsville, Utah was involved in a horrific car accident that killed three of his family members.

Caleb sustained broken bones and a traumatic brain injury.

Millions of Caleb’s brain cells were destroyed in the head-on collision, leaving him unable to move and in critical condition. He was unresponsive and doctors were unsure if he would survive.

Any progress made was so minute it practically went unnoticeable. Caleb’s parents worried that even if he did survive, he would never feel joy or excitement again.

Then one day, a therapy dog was brought into Caleb’s life.

Colonel the golden retriever walked through the door with Caleb’s occupational therapist. Little did the Howard family know this dog held the secret key to the boy’s recovery.

Watch what happened the moment Caleb met Colonel and prepare to be amazed.
