We’ve seen dogs do some amazing things over the years.
But those actions pale in impressive comparison to this one:
Earlier this month, a 24-year old named Danielle Jacobs posted a video of her Rottweiler helping her calm down from a full-blown Asperger’s Syndrome attack.
What makes the footage especially incredible is that Jacobs trained the dog herself. She adopted Samson from a local rescue shelter and has worked with him for four years.
"When I have a meltdown, I often have self-injurious behavior and I often self-harm," Jacobs tells The Huffington Post, explaining that the dog is not actually comforting her:
"He responds on action instead of emotion. That’s how I trained him."
Samson has earned the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen and Community Canine titles and successfully completed the public access test for service dogs.
