04 Mar Smart Pup for Dontae
My Name is Dontae, i am 6 yrs old. I have serve ASD-level 3 (autism spectrum disorder), non-verbal, Adhd & spd (sensory processing disorder) i also suffer from mild sesiures. My mummy has applied for a smart pups assistance dog for me, to help me while i go through all my life challenges.
Having a specially trained dog to help with daily routine and outings would be amazing for Me. Big crowded places are too busy and noisy for me. I get overwhelmed my sensory overload causes me to meltdown & sometimes i hurt myself. This makes it too distressing and dangerous for me to go. As there have been times where i have attempted to run away from my mummy in shopping centres/supermarkets, i also love cars, especially moving ones. And will try to hop in while cars are driving about, i will also try to hop in strangers cars when parked. Having a dog trained in tethering and anchoring would minimise any risk of absconding. My biggest fear is that i will get lost. When i run off, I’m not aware of my surroundings and get hurt. During nights i have difficulty sleeping, especially when I’m alone in my room, I get scared and go into really bad meltdowns that will last for many hours why my mummy & daddy try to soothe me too sleep. Not only would an assistance dog be a loving companion but it would keep me safe & give me security during my days & long nights.
This organisation is a non for-profit organisation and we feel well and truly honoured to have been chosen. The training for the pup can take 12-18 months but it is intense, and these dogs are just incredible.
