Danielle Jacobs, a 24-year-old woman with Asperger’s syndrome, has recently posted a video of her dog helping her calm down during one of her meltdowns. Namely, Asperger’s syndrome comes with autism-like behaviors, but it is not followed by language deficits. Also, just like any other person with autism, Jacobs goes through meltdowns, and she sometimes harms herself during an episode.

Danielle Jacobs adopted her dog Samson from a shelter and started training him to become a service dog. It turns out, they rescued each other. In the remarkable clip, the pooch comes to her quickly and comforts her with incredible care and patience. See for yourself here:
