There’s no denying that service animals that give therapy to people with health issues can have a fantastic impact on the humans that they help, and this video will show you one beautiful example of that. In this clip, you’ll see how a mother explains the impact that her dog had on her son, and it’s enough to bring me to tears in an instant.

It’s just impossible not to be touched by such a situation that we see in this video. Amanda, is the mother of Joey, a boy who started growing up differently since he was very little, at just three years of age.

Amanda noticed that her son Joey simply wasn’t as affectionate and social as other children of his age, and by the time he reached age 7, he was diagnosed with high-functioning Asperger’s Syndrome. His mom recalls how he never wanted to be with anybody else, and he found it very difficult to open up to anyone.

As Joey reached his teenage years, Joey showed interest in having a dog friend. Amanda found a post made by a shelter on Pinterest, showing a Pitbull, Roxy, who needed a home. She went to meet her right away and brought her home to meet Joey.

When Roxy and Joey met, it was love at first sight. Watch this wonderful friendship that shows dogs know no bounds, in the video below. This will tug at your heartstrings for all the right reasons.
