Dogs are taller than people. Simply put, they are the best friends we don’t deserve but have. Here is another illustration of their superiority. James Isaac, 9, has autism, can’t talk and feels awkward among people. Luckily, he has Mahe.
Mahe is his loyal service dog and will never leave him. The young patient from New Zealand recently had a magnetic resonance imaging scan to determine the cause of his seizures, and as the doctors observed how close the two were, they allowed Mahe to go with him.
Mahe stood by her best friend, snuggling in her face as James was placed inside the machine. James’s mother, Michelle Isaac, told the man the man was just staring at James and seemed genuinely worried.
Most people will probably pass out after going to the hospital, but Mahe is also really helpful in other places. Since being best friends two and a half years ago, the dog, trained by the New Zealand Dog Support Trust, has kept James calm during various activities.
According to media reports, the dogs only calm the children. Something magical happens between a child with autism and dogs.
