News Story Helps Reunite Autistic Boy with his Dog
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
We have a happy update to a story we told you about Saturday night on 3 News. The story was about an autistic boy who's companion dog went missing. 8 year old Matthew has autism and is non verbal.
His dog disappeared from the family's back yard late Friday night. Their home is located near Alameda and Hopper. The boys family says the dog helped motivate their son and got him going through the day.
We are happy to report, after seeing our story, a good Samaritan called 3 News to let us know the dog was on his front porch. It was several blocks away from where the dog went missing. After checking it out, sure enough it was the family's dog and it has been reunited with Matthew.
