We need somedoggie's help!
Hey, everydoggie, kitty, hamsterrier and hooman! It's me, Patches! My mom and Aunt Wendy are wondering if anyone out there knows of an assistance dog for autism that is in the Atlanta area or could COME to the Atlanta area. There is a little boy, here, who is in desparate need of an "autism" doggie. He's on some sort of list to get a dog, but he's somewhere around number 1000. We're hoping to find him a doggie that isn't on the "list", but has had the training.
We don't know much about these things, but since we have friends from all over the world, we thought that maybe someone could help...or at least point us in the right direction!
Pupdate: This family is desperate since the boy ran away from home and was found hanging from a pool cover. He was one very lucky little boy THIS TIME! A couple of other children, in the Atlanta area, were not so lucky. There have been some deaths of autistic children in recent weeks! It was told to us, that these dogs will actually lie down on the back of the child to prevent them from running away. (We don't know if this is accurate, we just know what we were told). Thanks to those of you who have left us comments!
