ravinlunachick Posted January 20, 2012 Share Posted January 20, 2012 Just submitted an application for a service dog for ds. Cross your fingers for us! This group only places dogs locally (German Shepherds) for kids with autism, and I have no idea what the wait time is like. He is getting really bad about running away from us in public, and I am terrified that he will get lost. He can't speak or respond verbally to his name when called, and he has ZERO danger sense. He has actually been tapped by a car that was backing up in a parking lot, because he ran away and has no sense of danger whatsoever. I am pretty sure I lost ten years off my life that day! Thankfully, the driver heard my shrieking over his radio and stopped *just* in time, as the bumper hit ds. Also, large bodies of water seemingly call his name, and he will run off and climb into whatever he can. He will also willingly go with anyone, which is reason # 287 why his running off scares us. I am really, REALLY hoping that we will be able to get one placed. DS loves our dog Rosie, but bless her heart, she has very little brain (lab mix, lol) and is not suited to be a service dog. Maybe if I stuffed his pockets with bacon.....hmmm..... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
