Or is our son of nearly 7 who is a handsome, smart, curious, loving and kind little boy.. he is also autistic..
This means that he finds it difficult understanding words and communication using language.. he also struggles with different sounds, crowded places and many other things.. he experiences life slightly differently in general..
We found that he relates to animals great, and that specifically dogs seem to bring out something.. his first full sentence was to my sister's dog!
So after some research, we learned that there's a whole method of therapy with dogs for autistic children. A puppy is carefully chosen according to it's genetics and characteristics, and adopted by the family.. then the child and dog train together, teaching the dog to help the child with his needs, help with difficult situations, help detect stress, teaching the child to understand feelings through body language, different gestures, empathy, sharing, caring for another living creature and also learning how to train the dog himself.. learning patience and persistence. Through all this creating a bond between them, like a type of soul mate for life...
This could be a dream come true for Or, and for us as a family.
We found a trainer that specializes in working with autistic kids and their families with therapy dogs. Teaching them how to train the dog, how to make the dog the biggest asset the family and specifically the autistic child - could have.
He helped us find James, a beautiful Australian Shepherd puppy, who is 4 months old and the smartest animal we have ever seen. The owner was looking for the perfect family to sell to, and once he heard our story - handed him over so that we can start working on on the training right away, and he will get the payment once we manage to raise the money.. An absolute Angel!
If you could help us achieve this goal - it could be AMAZING!!
Thanking you for your time and help..
