Dogs are definitely a man’s best friend, and if you have a dog, you’re probably quite familiar with how often they go above and beyond. If you don’t, you’ve undoubtedly heard stories about dogs who have gone the extra mile to help their owners.
However, in this case, Samson goes above and beyond to help his owner, Danielle, who has Asperger syndrome and issues with depression and self harm.
This is what’s considered a meltdown. Yes Samson is alerting. I trained him to alert to depressive episodes and self harm not both but he alerted. It appears the response is late but it’s actually supposed to be as I’m coming out of the meltdown as I tend to have a panic attack after.
Despite the heart-breaking video outlining Danielle’s daily struggle, it shows exactly how responsive Samson is and how great dogs can really be.
