Default Boxers an autistic children

Hey everyone! Was wondering if anyone else has boxers that do well with handicapped kids? I have a 4 yr old autistic son that loves r boxer, he pets her and rubs her and sometimes steps on her an pours his drinks on her! lol but she never gets mad, its like she understand so she is very protective of him. She follows him wherever he goes in the back yard. One time our son Jayden went outside without us knowing about it and both dogs were barkin at us to let us know he was wandering off. Our dogs are amazingly patient with him. If you have an autistic child i would def recommend a boxer pup as a playmate, they do wonderful with those kids!

I have a cousin who is autistic. He just turned 13 and is the only autistic person my dogs have ever made contact with. They do seem to know to be extra careful and gentle around him which I also found to be awesome! They're the same with elderly people who they come into contact with as well.

Great to know! I too have an almost 8 yr old cousin with autism. They haven't me each other yet but will on thanksgiving day. Hope Wyatt understands also. Although my cousin is very OCD and has BAD anxiety. He "flaps" a lot. Not sure how "why why" will do with him. Hopefully he won't have to crated all day:-(

My cousin is also a big time "flapper". He especially went nuts for round things that spin. Like tires, fans, etc. He's grown out of it some, but he still does do it.

Kari we def need Joann in this one. A far as mine they have been around small babies and children as well as elderly and never a person with a handicap or mental disability (sorry if that's not the right wording. It's not to offend). But I am sure if we did they would know to behave

Joann has 3 boxers with 3 autistic grandbabies. They all do very well around them.

Wow, she must be a strong lady! Having one autistic child is definetly challenging enuff but three!, whew! Lol we always say that God picked us to be Jaydens parents because alot of young couples couldnt do what we do.(me an my wife r 30) Our dogs r special too, they really seem to understand to be gentle and patient with him.

Hey, Im sure Wyatt will do well, just dont let him jump up on ur lil cousin and everything shud b ok. Unless your cousin is scared of Wyatt, which he may be. Our son kinda ignores the dogs some of the time but they are really intune with everything he does. The only precaution is that autistic kids cant say get down, dont bite me, or dont scratch me so if the pup starts jumpin on him an he cant tell it to get down he may never like dogs again. But im sure u will be monitoring your dog and your lil cousin. Have a great Thanksgiving!
