Nothing is more rewarding than seeing the bond between a boy and his dog. It’s even more rewarding to know that that bond saves both of their lives. James is a boy with autism who can’t go into public places or look his family members in the eye. He can barely even tolerate them touching him.
But since Mahe was introduced into his life, James has made great strides. Mahe helps to keep James calm, even when he’s on a hospital bed getting an MRI done. Mahe looks on with concern, nosing his master’s face to make sure that he’s okay. When they’re out and about, Mahe is tethered to James to keep him safe, as he has a tendency to wander off.

Mahe has been trained for this since he was a puppy, and he was chosen specifically for autism training because of his calm demeanor. Share away, people!
