It is a story of an autistic boy
Jonny and a rescued dog Xena. Jonny has autism from his birth and though he
could read quite well he did not speak. He used to feel isolated by other
children and his parents Linda and Grant were quite worried about their son.
However, an event changed their lives. When Jonny was just 8 years old they
heard of a rescued dog Xena who was to be given out to a family for further
care. Xena was fit enough for the fundraising after its injury and the Hickey
family was chosen for its upbringing.
The first time Xena saw Jonny, it was an instant connection. The dog sat on lap of Jonny and he was so happy with his new friend. They continued to be best friends and now Jonny can talk. He updates 19000+ followers on Facebook about his life with Xena. He posted a video where he said about the friendship between him and his dog. He says that they are best friends and as they have some problems in their lives they connect to each other quite well. This is what a loving dog can do to a child.
