Saki was a stray German Shepherd who was rescued from the streets as a puppy. Once she was rescued she was chosen by the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation to receive special training to become a search and rescue dog. Saki moved in with a trainer to finish her training regimen. Her trainer just happened to live right next door to Danny and his family.
One day, Saki's trainer, Dennie, noticed that Saki had escaped from the back yard. Saki slipped through a small hole in the fence and immediately ran to Danny's house. For some reason, Saki seemed drawn to Danny and Danny fell in love with Saki. From the moment Saki entered his life, Danny began to change. Danny conquered potty training, could throw a ball straight and even formed his first complete sentence, which was "I am Saki's Dad."
When Saki's training was over, the agency wanted to take her away to place her in the job field she was trained for. Danny's parents, however, were determined to adopt Saki so Danny would never be separated from her. After meeting with the family, the trainers realized that Saki had fulfilled her training by rescuing Danny. Saki escaped her yard for the best reason possible, and found a new home and best friend in Danny! Watch the video below to hear the emotional story of Danny and Saki, as told by his parents.
