Publisher's Summary

Dale was still a baby when his parents realised that something wasn't right. Worried, his mother Nuala took him to see several doctors, before finally hearing the word 'autism' for the first time. Dale's autism was severe and violent and family life was a daily battleground. But the Gardner's lives were transformed when they welcomed a gorgeous golden retriever into the family. The special bond between Dale and his dog Henry helped them to produce the breakthrough in Dale they had long sought.
This is a heartrending and fascinating account of how one devoted and talented dog helped a little boy conquer his autism.

What an inspiring story

This book exceeded my expectations. The tenacity and perseverance of the people in the story is inspiring. My favourite part is when Dale told his mum that he loves her for the first time, and they way Dale becomes his moms rock to help his little sister.
