When Xena, The Abandoned Pit Bull Meets This Autistic Boy, Something Very Magical Happens…Brooke Kaelin
This big healthy dog was once abandoned, injured and covered in mange. He was so bad off doctors gave him just a 1% chance of survival. Thanks to some loving volunteers who nurtured him around the clock, he did live and found an unforgettable forever home with a loving family that included a little boy with Autism. According to the parents, this rescued Pitt bull did what tens of thousands of dollars of therapy could not: he gave their son a new leas on life. The moment they brought him home their son began to talk more than they’d ever heard him do before. They’ve been fast friends ever since. This video melted my heart! Seeing this rescued dog heal and become an in-home therapy dog was a little slice of heaven!
