From an early age, Lorenzo Miller realized he loved dogs.

Growing up in the inner city, the 6-year-old saw the stray dogs in his neighborhood knocking over garbage cans looking for food and wanted to help them. Soon, he began to bring the dogs into his home, but was not allowed to keep them. He had to smuggle them into his bedroom and trained them, knowing they had to be quiet in order to keep them hidden.
