Man's Best Friend. A boy and his dog. How else can you describe the strong bond between yourself and a very special canine friend? This is the story of Baidu the Rottweiler. Baidu was losing his home due to a relatives failing health. He was on his way to the local shelter, where he undoubtedly would have been euthanized because of his advanced age. Baidu found me at a time in my life when it was desperately needed. I thought I would be saving him by adopting him as my own. But little did I know, that he would be saving me as well!
