There are so many things that make this story heartwarming. Xena was on death’s door when she was rescued. Thanks to her warrior spirit, she made an amazing recovery. Now she’s repaying the debt to her adopted family, the Hickeys, by being a special friend to their autistic son, Johnny. Since autism affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact socially, a dog’s natural ability to pick up on non-verbal cues makes them ideal pets.
