09 Oct Smart Pup for Elliot (269216)
Help The Hunter Harness A Hero Hound Elliot is Our happy, maddening, loving, wild, frightening, smart, adventurous and special 4 year old boy. Elliot has Cerebral Palsy and Autism. He sees the world in his own unique way, and struggles with many things that other people don’t.
Imagine that the shops are too big, bright and noisy to go to. Imagine eating only food of all the one colour or texture. Imagine having no concept of safety, where you just walk out into traffic in carparks and on roads. Imagine not being able to tell people what you want and how you feel, or make them understand you. Imagine being curious about everything you see and so then putting everything in your mouth to try and figure it out. Imagine being happy, scared, confused and frustrated all at once, every day. This is a tiny insight into Elliot’s world.
Elliot, like any child, deserves the very best that life has to offer, and that is exactly what we are trying to give him by fundraising for his very own Smart Pup.
A Smart Pup would open up the world for Elliot – not just physically keeping him safe by stopping him from running onto roads, or running away, but also make him feel more secure when outside of his home. A Smart Pup would make Elliot more approachable to others, and would help him to be understood so much better without anyone ever having to say a word. A Smart Pup would be trained tp intervene when he is hurting himself due to his confusion and frustration, and would be both companion and friend to our always alone little boy. Someone he can love who will love him in return in a special way that other people simply cannot do.
