Tupper Needs a Autism Service Dog!

   The cost of a Autism Service Dog is $30,000.00!!!!

All Money raised will go towards the purchuce of an Autism Service Dog. Tupper has been Matched with a handsome English  Yellow Lab named Lego. We have begun training with him in December. 
   Tupper is a very active and loving little boy of three who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) just after turning two. Tupper has also been diagnosed with an infantile form of Colitis as well as GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) which he is slowly out growing. 
     Tupper is the sixth child born to his mother Nancy and the first child for his father John. He has one brother Matthew who is 24 and lives on his own. Tuppers oldest sister Crystal 21 also lives on her own. His 3 other sisters  Victoria 19, Sydney 17 and Daegen 13 all live at home with his Mom, Dad, Grandma (G'Ma), and Grandpa (G'Pa). The family has 2 cats Wicket 13, Wi-Fi 5. Tupper loves his buddy Wi-Fi, they often hang out together.
     Tupper loves to run and climb and play. One issue is Tupper knows no fear or safety consequences. He will run or bolt into roads or away from his parents or home. This is where a Service Dog will help. The dog will follow Tupper and help keep him safe and can be trained to alert to bolting and even to track him if he wanders. When Tupper bolts it is very difficult for his mom to catch/grab him because of her health. Nancy has Scleroderma.
     Scleroderma causes collagen build up (scaring) in connective tissues throughout the body. This has caused damage to Nancy's lungs, heart, gastrointestinal tract, as well as skin, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This makes running after Tupper very hard and grabbing him even harder. Nancy has contractures of her fingers causing clawing with little to no movement. She needs to be very careful because catching a finger on something could cause devastating damage such as broken fingers, and ripped ligaments and tendons. Scleroderma also makes healing VERY slow. Injuries that most people heal in days or weeks can take months and years to heal. 
     Thank you so much in advance for your support! Having this added support in the family will mean that Tupper gets to experiance the world with a partner to help keep him safe and provide support when he is feeling anxious or overwhelmed. It also means Nancy will be able to feel safe taking Tupper out by herself knowing she has Lego to help.
