  • After experiencing a difficult breakup, young Byron Taylor sunk 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 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.

    Byron was struck by how aggressive Geo was acting, growling and tearing the noose apart.

  • Byron says he wouldn’t be alive today if it wasn’t for Geo.

    He believes it was his dog who sensed what he was planning to do, and he wasn't going to let it happen.

  • Sadly, vets recently found a tumor on Geo’s head that is spreading to his muscles and his bones.

    Geo saved Byron's life, and now Byron is working to save Geo's in return. Byron has set up an online fundraiser to help pay for Geo's medical treatment.
