THE STORY:

“Service for A.J.” is a fundraiser effort to help 10-year old Adrien John obtain and train a service dog that will help him with his ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), Anxiety, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). His therapist, doctors, and school officials all agree that a fully trained service dog could be an amazing presence and life-changing for A.J. Adrien was a recipient for a basic training scholarship through the organization “Make it Pawsible,” but we need help with the special needs training. Adrien is a strong young man who deserves a canine friend that will help him and guide him through the struggles of the world. Please help us make this possible for him. Every little donation gets us that much closer for service for A.J.

 

Adrien is an amazing little guy who has talents and interests lie in activities such as skate boarding, drawing, and collecting Pokémon cards and Star Wars action figures and memorabilia.  However he loves animals more than anything, including his stuffed Pikachu. He enjoys making little houses for the bugs and snacks for the squirrels. A.J. relates to animals and understands them more than he understands people. He seeks attention from people, yet is too scared to take that first step. He has issues with social skills and doesn't understand the boundaries of what to do or what not to do. He also demonstrates repetitive behavior that other kids think is "weird." He doesn't know how to express his feelings or anxiety.

“Service for A.J.” is to train a service dog for Adrien's particular needs such as the following: Anchoring, pressure therapy, boundary alert, repetitive behavior interruption, and waking from night terrors. This Dog is going to will help him get thought anxious situations such as crowds, the night, and transitions. The dog will also be trained to “anchor” so A.J. runs when it could be dangerous, the dog will keep him from danger. A well-trained dog can wake A.J. up from scary nightmares that have always plagued him, and help him with is sensory issues with texture and pressure. A service dog can even interrupt and discourage A.J.’s repetitive behavior such as pulling out his hair and picking at his body, and help him calm down so he doesn't feel he needs to growl at people to keep them away.
