Dog Saves Owner from Violent Asperger’s Meltdown





One of the challenges that patients of Asperger’s Syndrome has is the capacity for self-harming. It may seem like a hopeless situation for some but Danielle Jacobs found a way to help herself deal with the problem with the aid of her loving dog, Samson.

She was diagnosed with the disease in 2013. She trained her 4-year old Rottweiler to stop her from hurting herself whenever she gets into her self-harming episodes.

“This is what having Aspergers is like,” Jacobs narrates on YouTube. “This is what’s considered a meltdown…I trained him to alert to depressive episodes and self harm not both but he alerted.”

Danielle found Samson from an animal rescue center in Phoenix, Arizona.


She adopted him and trained him immediately to help her with her meltdowns.


This adorable boy passed Canine Good Citizen, Canine Community, and Public Access tests.


Here’s the full video of her meltdown and how Samson helped Danielle calm down when she started hurting herself.
