Interesting story: this little autistic boy learns to communicate with others thanks to his dog
The appearance of the Cocker Spaniel changed the life of a little boy.
Dogs often become full members of the family. They are excellent life companions that family members can always count on. In Hampshire, UK, a dog named Fern has become the best friend of Leon, a little boy with autism.
Fern and Leon could be the title of the same work as “Belle and Sebastien”.
The appearance of the Cocker Spaniel changed the life of a little boy. Until he was 4 years old, not a word escaped his lips.
Leon Kirby-Bulner did not speak or make eye contact. He did not interact with anyone and seemed to be locked in a world inaccessible to loved ones.
“But when he met Fern, it was love at first sight”, his mother told the Daily Mail. “He had a sparkle in his eyes that we had never seen before.
Parents witnessed an extraordinary metamorphosis. Thanks to the animal, which is just over 3 years old, Leon began to come out of his shell.
Fern and Leon became best friends.
They have created a unique and unbreakable bond; they do absolutely everything together. The dog helped the boy increase his self-confidence and open up to the outside world.
