Anne and her sister Cleo were given up to Animal Control because their mom had to start traveling for her work and could no longer care for them. Western Missouri Basset Rescue, Inc. from Raytown Missouri USA took them into rescue, got them vetted and put them on Petfinder to find them a home.
Months passed and as they did we could see Anne was very shy around her sister Cleo.
Then Cleo was adopted and though we worried Anne would be depressed we had to take the chance to see what would happen once her sister was no longer there to monitor her.
Anne became a very social and her loving playful personality began to blossom.
After a week or two we got a call from a lady with a son who had Asperger's. The child's physician thought it might be good for him to have a service dog to help him develop his social skills.
They were looking at Annie so we went to meet them, the boy was a delight and he took to Anne right away and she to him they were both coming out of their shyness together and helping each other learn to trust. It was a perfect match!
I have received communications from the boy telling me how much he loves Anne and how well she is doing under his care. He brags that they go everywhere together and Anne helps him be less shy around people they meet in their travels, he is so willing to share his stories about his canine companion. She took the Challenge to develop her own sweet personality, to become herself without the constant overbearing of her sister's demands and is helping her master to become less introverted. Anne took the challenge and came out a winner.
