We are proud to have a 4 Paws for Ability service dog! We have the Dot,  which is Sammy's sister! She has made a huge impact to my son's life just like just like Sammy has for Matthew. We call it 4 Paws Magic!!

We were in the same class as Matthew and Sammy.  Bibi has expanded my autistic son's life.  She is a dear, people often comment on her excellent behavior.  I could not ask for a better companion for him.
