Theo GDear Family and Friends,

Theo, our precious 4 year old boy was born with some mighty big challenges.  He has a 100% hearing deficit.  He also has Autism, and an inhibited sense of danger, which puts him highly at risk for running into dangerous situations at a second’s notice.

We have been approved for a Service Dog from 4 Paws for Ability.  A Service Dog will help keep Theo out of danger by guiding him to safety, comforting him when having meltdowns, alerting adults when there is a situation, assist his sleep as a sleep companion and be a buddy who is devoted to him.

This is not a “Therapy Dog” but a fully trained Service Dog, there is a big difference!  The puppy must be carefully selected and the year and a half training is extensive and costly.  It costs at least $40,000 to train a dog. We are asked to raise $17,000 to help cover the costs of the training and dog. So we are asking for help to cover the high costs of amazing life changing addition to Theo’s service.
