John had always struggled with autism, and while he had come a long way, he still found it difficult to navigate certain
social situations. That’s where his Autism Assistant Canine, Max, came in. Max was a highly trained dog who had been specifically trained to assist those with autism.
Max had been with John for several years now and had become a constant presence in his life. Whether they were out in public or at home, Max was always by John’s side, providing comfort and support. However, when John fell ill and was hospitalized, he was worried that Max wouldn’t be able to come with him.
To John’s relief, the hospital had a program that allowed therapy dogs to visit patients. Max was registered as an official therapy dog, so he was able to visit John
every day during his hospital stay. When Max first arrived at the hospital, John was hooked up to various machines and was feeling very anxious.
As soon as Max entered the room, John’s anxiety began to fade away. Max crawled up onto the hospital bed and snuggled in next to John. From that moment on, Max never left John’s side. Whenever John was feeling overwhelmed or scared, Max was there to offer a comforting paw or a warm cuddle.
The nurses and doctors quickly learned that Max was an important part of John’s treatment and began to incorporate him into John’s therapy. Max would join John
during his sessions and provide emotional support. John’s progress was remarkable, and the medical staff knew that Max played a big part in his recovery.
Finally, after several weeks in the hospital, John was well enough to go home. Max was by his side every step of the way, from the hospital bed to the car ride home. As soon as they got back to their house, Max curled up next to John on the couch, and they both let out a contented sigh.
The Autism Assistant Canine had done his job and had been a faithful companion to John throughout his hospital stay. Max had shown that his loyalty knew no bounds and that he would always be there to support John, no matter what.
