Our son Aronas is 10 years old. He is autistic.  He does not talk and does not understand 70% of what he is being told. He unwillingly orients himself in the outer world and lives in his own, inner little world. He cannot tie up his shoes and cannot use toiletries on his own. Due to his language disability and inability to communicate Aronas does not have any friends and always plays on his own. His best friend is his soft pet dog toy that he has pulled along with him since he was 3 years old. Aronas does not separate from this toy pet neither in the day time, nor in the night, apart from the times when he attends the special school. This once pretty toy has already lost its’ shape, colour and loveliness.   

We would like to help our son to find a real friend who would help him improve his communication skills and learn more about the world around him. We believe that a real, trained puppy could become a true and faithful friend to Aronas. This type of specifically trained puppy for autistic children costs 3950 EUROS (http://www.servicedogseurope.com/autism-service-dogs/our-puppy-programme/). We would greatly appreciate any possible help that you could extend to us in helping our son.

Thanking you sincerely.
