Smart Pup for Jacob (228216)

Smart Pup for Jacob (228216)

Jacob is our 3 1/2 year old son who was diagnosed with Autism in July 2019. He is a loving boy, but his behaviours have become increasingly hard to manage as he has gotten older.

He runs away from us, which often puts him in danger; he can be violent, particularly towards his little sister who is 18 months old; and he struggles to sleep. He adores dogs, and having researched it we feel that an Autism Assistance Dog could really help these behaviours and benefit him overall. This would not only help Jacob, but also the whole family as we live with constant high alert and anxiety over where he is, what he is doing, as well as lack of sleep! His behaviours also increasingly significantly limit what we are able to do as a family. Jacob needs constant ‘company’ to stay regulated and calm, and we feel a dog would help him with that.
Thank you for any contribution towards a puppy for our darling boy.

    My wife and I are glad to donate towards an assistance dog being trained for Jacob. May God use this dog to help Jacob be gentler, increase in love and be more aware of his actions. I hope the result is a strengthened household in Christ and a household that has a greater love for Jesus.
