This is a story of a special boy, a special dog, and a special bond. Fate brought Johnny, an autistic child, and Xena, an abused pitbull, together. Johnny’s mom friended Xena’s Facebook page and followed her progress to make sure the dog would make it.

Eventually, Xena was adopted by Johnny’s family, but nobody could have expected what would happen next. Johnny and Xena bonded immediately, and where all other forms of therapy failed, Xena succeeded in helping Johnny turn his life around. And Xena, after suffering so much, found a loving home where she is much more than a pet.

Johnny and Xena have become partners in raising awareness for autism.  And their story is absolutely heartwarming.
