A young man named Byron sunk into a deep depression after his relationship fell apart. He hit bottom and began contemplating suicide. After a day of heavy drinking, Byron made a noose and went downstairs to write a goodbye note to his family.
When he returned upstairs, Byron found the noose clenched inside his dog’s mouth. Geo, a six-year-old Rare Welsh Bull Mastiff, had grabbed the noose when Byron left the room and refused to give it back. The more Byron tried to retrieve the rope, the louder Geo would growl — something gentle Geo hardly ever did.
At first, Byron thought Geo wanted to play — but before he knew it, his dog completely destroyed the noose. Now, Byron says he wouldn’t be alive today if it wasn’t for Geo. He believes his passive pup had sensed what he was going to do, and wasn’t about to let it happen. It was enough to stop Byron in his tracks and make him want to live.
As Byron works through his depression, he’s now faced with a major blow. Vets recently found an aggressive tumor on Geo’s head, and the cancer is spreading to his muscles and his bones. Byron has set up an online fundraiser to help pay for Geo’s medical treatment and is coming to terms with the fact he only has a little bit of time left with his faithful dog.
Byron’s story is going viral, and for good reason. Even though Byron is making sure Geo lives out his last days to the fullest, Byron is grateful that his best friend gave him the greatest gift in return… the gift of life.

After experiencing a difficult breakup, Byron fell into a deep depression. One day, things became so painful that he decided to take his own life. After using a piece of rope to make a noose, Byron went downstairs to write a goodbye letter to his family.
When he returned upstairs, Byron realized his dog, Geo, had the noose inside his mouth and refused to give it back. Geo, a six-year-old Rare Welsh Bull Mastiff, was normally very passive. Byron was struck by how aggressive Geo was acting — growling and tearing the noose apart.
