Rescue Pit Bull Teaches Autistic Boy To Hug And Kiss His Mom

An autistic boy learns to love and show compassion all thanks to a pit bull. We’re all aware of the poor reputation the pit bull breed has unfairly garnered over the years, but they can be as loving and life-changing as any other dog — and that’s made very apparent in the video below.

“Thirteen year old Joey had difficulty meeting new people, making friends and simply showing affection to his mother, Amanda. That all changed when he met his best friend and ally, Roxy, a sweet Pit Bull. They are perfect for each other. Roxy has guided Joey from his isolated shell and shown him the true meaning of love.”
