It looks like Louisville Cardinals basketball player Kevin Ware won’t have to recover on his own, especially since he just got a dog to help him through the healing process.

Ware has been making headlines ever since his gruesome leg break was caught on air during the 2013 NCAA Midwest Regional final tournament. It seems to be one of the worst injuries caught on camera and is even being described as “one of the most gruesome injuries in televised sports history.”

Thankfully, Ware is healthy and recovering just fine. It’s also great to know that his new dog – appropriately named Scar – is by his side.

Ware first broke the news of his dog via Instagram by posting, “Welcome Scar to the Ware Family! We named him Scar to represent my struggle, and the ‘scar’ that will be left on my leg after the healing process.”

He then continued to post, “”Scar so chill. My boy!”

As you can tell from both photos, Ware and the dog are getting along nicely. Dogs make the perfect medicine don’t they? It’s great to see Ware is doing so well!
