PJ Regan was an addict. Clove was a dog who was almost euthanized on two different occasions. But PJ saved Clove, and the dog saved PJ in return. Now they are living their best life together.
Pj was on his way to a full recovery from his addiction. He decided to adopt a dog to help him cope with the transition.
