This powerful Rottweiler feared by so many can save your Life

Dogs with good temperament, an innate ability to be trained, good health and stamina may qualify to be trained to assist people with some type of physical or mental disability. Although there are a number of disabilities people can suffer, dogs usually provide assistance to those with seizures, diabetes, autism, Post Traumatic stress Disorder (PTSD), blind or visual impairment, hearing impairment, mental disorders and many others.

Samson, the Rottweiler you are about to see in the video is a Service Dog. The woman he’s with is suffering an Aspergers Meltdown. Samson is trained to alert her when these meltdowns occur because these episodes are commonly followed a panic attack.  This reaction prevents the patient from hurting herself and minimizing the possibilities of self-inflicted damage.

Do you know what service dogs are trained to do?

What is Asperger syndrome?

Asperger syndrome (AS) is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), one of a distinct group of complex neurodevelopment disorders characterized by social impairment, communication difficulties, and restrictive, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior.

The severity of communication and behavioral deficits, and the degree of disability, is variable in those affected by ASD.  Some individuals with ASD are severely disabled and require very substantial support for basic activities of daily living.  Asperger syndrome is considered by many to be the mildest form of ASD and is synonymous with the most highly functioning individuals with ASD.
