Dogs Helps Young Boy with Autism

Just an amazing story of how this wonderful dog is helping a little boy and his mother.

TUCSON - Malcolm Turner is 6-years old and has autism. On Monday, Mr. Darcy, his golden Labrador retriever was certified as his Handi-Dog. The organization helps pair families with dogs and then trains the K-9 to assist a person with their disability.
Mr. Darcy has been with the Turner family since he was just eight weeks old. "People don't realize how much work it takes not just training the dog but training the child how to interact," said Jessica, Malcolm's mother.
