Service dog comforts woman with Asperger's Syndrome

Danielle Jacobs, a 24-year-old woman from Tempe, AZ, posted this video on YouTube to show what it's like to have Asperger's Syndrome. It shows her service dog comforting her during a meltdown.

From BuzzFeed News :

Danielle said that she got Samson, a 4-year-old rottweiler, from HALO animal rescue in Phoenix after several evaluations and assessments.

She said: “I immediately began training him for service work for Asperger’s syndrome, PTSD, TBI, and anxiety disorder. He alerts to meltdowns, anger, depressive episodes, flashbacks and nightmares, stimming, provides balance and counterbalance, and alerts to panic attacks.”
