The arrival of the Cocker Spaniel turned the little boy’s life upside down.
Dogs often become full members of the family. They are wonderful life companions that family members can always count on. In Hampshire, UK, a dog named Fern became the best friend of Leon, a little boy with autism.
The appearance of the Cocker Spaniel changed the life of a little boy. Until he was 4 years old, not a single word came out of his mouth.
Leon Kirby-Bullner did not speak or make eye contact with others. He did not communicate with anyone and was as if 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. Thanks to the animal, which is just over 3 years old, Leo began to come out of his shell.
Fern and Leo 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.
