The Moment Our Autistic Son's Dream Came True
Occurred on November 22, 2021 / Nevada, Missouri, USA
Info from Licensor: Our son, Peyton, has wanted a pug for the past 6-7 years, but with his Autism, ADHD, and Oppositional Defiant Disorder diagnoses, we knew we had some work to do before giving him a responsibility that big. He's been working so hard in school, therapy, and at home and the amount of love he has for all living creatures showed us it was time. One day, when he was at school, we drove 2 hours away to pick up his puppy. Because he's rescued countless wild animals in the past, we told him it was a bunny our dog had caught. He knows Mommy doesn't do well with wild critters, so he was more than happy to help. You can see his restraint and gentleness when the box is lifted and hear the sheer gratitude in his voice."
