Boy With Autism Gets Puppy Surprise

A young boy with autism cries with joy as his mom surprises him with a tiny pet puppy. Cohen Wade had been doing well at school and socially, so his mom Ashley wanted to get him the puppy to further help him socially. Research has found pet dogs can greatly help children with autism, and Ashley, from Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland, revealed the puppy’s influence is already apparent. In the heartwarming video, Cohen approaches the puppy - hidden beneath a blanket - with nervous excitement, before realizing it’s a dog and crying happy tears. After giving Ashley a huge cuddle, he goes back to the dog, which they have named Ru, gently picks it up and cuddles it in his arms.
