Mother overwhelmed after son with autism curls up with new service dog
XENIA, Ohio -- Shanna Niehaus' 5-year-old son Kai tried for many years to make friends but it never happened. But when she saw young Kai, who has autism, cuddle up to his new service dog she couldn't hold back her emotions. "Here's my child who has struggled with communication making a connection with so much ease," she told "That's when it hit me. That's when I got choked up."
