Jonny Hickey was diagnosed with autism when he was very young. Throughout his eight years of life, solitude had suited him just fine. He could talk and read, but couldn’t blend in with others except for his family. But, some months ago, everything changed.
One day, when Jonny’s mom was watching late night news, she saw news about abused pit bull. The pit bull was named Xena, and she was in dreadful condition. So, she adopted Xena and brought her home. And this changed everything in her and her son’s life.
Jonny seemed to be connected with dogs and especially Xena. And she just loved him. They both recovered through each-other’s help.
This video was produced by the ASPCA and was debuted at the Awards Ceremony on Nov, 21 2013…Xena! ASPCA Dog of The Year.
I was really touched by the connection of Xena and Jonny. What about you? What did you think about the video? Do let us know in the comments. We love hearing from you.
