Let me introduce you to Bumble Bee...

A lot of people think I'm crazy to go all the way to Ohio for Thor's Autism Service Dog. After all... it's over 3,000 miles away.

But I'm not the only person to travel a long way to 4 Paws for Ability for this miracle.

A family in Switzerland traveled to Xenia, Ohio (to the very same place we are going in August) to get their daughter an Autism Service Dog. It changed their lives and they have been kind enough to make a video showing some of the tasks Bumble Bee is trained to do for their daughter, Sinaia.

These are the very same tasks that Thor's dog is being trained to do right now. He (or she) is going through a 9 month intensive training program to learn to be Thor's pawtner....our job is to get there in August to train with them, learn all the commands, and to finally bring them home!

Please watch this video to see what an Autism Service Dog can do for a child and their family.

This is another video from the same family (this was a TV interview after they brought Bumble Bee home to Switzerland)
