An autistic boy learns love and compassion through the heart of a Pit Bull. Watch this amazing, inspirational journey. Please SHARE SHARE SHARE! Let's fight those misconceptions.

Thirteen year old Joey had difficulty meeting new people, making friends and simply showing affection to his mother, Amanda. That all changed when he met his best friend and ally, Roxy, a sweet Pit Bull. They are perfect for each other. Roxy has guided Joey from his isolated shell and shown him the true meaning of love.

Today, Joey is going out for sports, has made new friends and has learned to give his mom hugs and kisses. He even cried over a TV show.

It has been said, the power of an animals love knows no boundaries, this is one such story.
