Reuben Jansen, 19 years old, lives in Cockle Bay, Auckland. He is autistic, non-verbal and suffers from hypotonia (decreased muscle tone leading to stability issues and trouble walking), Times reports. Going out to public places or even taking a walk to the park was too difficult, putting the family’s life on hold. But within months of ADNZT (Assistance Dogs NZ Trust) service dog Logan joining the family, Reuben’s quality of life soared. ADNZT services 40 clients around New Zealand and has 25 puppies in training. But with their waitlist over five years long with over 50 families on the list, they hope to increase capacity – a goal that can only be made possible by the continued support of the public.
