Tyler's New Best Friend

Tyler get a lick from his new puppy, Bruce

“ Wherever Tyler goes, he'll be sure to have Bruce by his side. ”

Bruce becomes the perfect addition to Tyler's family

Some kids wish for a trip to the Walt Disney World® Resort or to go on an exciting shopping spree. But two-and-a-half-year-old Tyler of Lewiston, Pa., had a different idea. He wanted a puppy of his very own.

One fall day, Tyler, diagnosed with a heart condition, eagerly waited for his wish for an English bulldog pup to come true. When Bruce, an adorable English bulldog puppy, walked through the door, the young boy and dog connected immediately. Bruce seemed equally excited as Tyler was to meet his new friend. The dog licked Tyler's face and playfully knocked him down. Then Tyler gave Bruce a gift -- a new toy bone. Tyler and Bruce had so much fun getting to know each other, and it was clear they were a perfect match. Bruce made himself at home very quickly; he fit perfectly into Tyler's small chair. Tyler didn't mind at all because he was happy to have him there. 

Tyler, now a three-year-old full of energy, is excited to grow up with a special friend like Bruce. Bruce has become the perfect companion for Tyler when he is coloring, playing his favorite sports outside and watching his favorite television show, SpongeBob SquarePants. Wherever Tyler goes, he'll be sure to have Bruce by his side. This furry friend will definitely make a big difference in Tyler's life.
