This Boy Was Introduced To A Dog After A Brain Injury, And It Had Me In Tears
A therapy dog is a special dog who is trained to be an aid for people in need of assistance. Although they provide assistance, it is not in the same way as an assistant or service dog. They are only present to help keep patients at ease while they are going through treatments. When it comes to children, a therapy dog is a fantastic option. They can boost self-esteem, focus and overall compassion. It can be hard on a child to have ailments at such a young age, like 6-year-old Caleb. He suffered an unfortunate brain injury after a head-on collision with a car. In the hospital, his parents agreed to introduce him to a therapy dog. The pair bonded immediately, and what followed was truly heartwarming.
