Toby's life transformed - by autism dog Sox

He's given me a reason to live

Toby

April is Autism Awareness Month, and today we meet Toby, a nine-year-old boy who has suffered from autism nearly all his life.

Toby used to have terrible tantrums, self harm, and during his darkest times even confessed to wanting to end his life. However in June last year Toby and his family's lives were dramatically transformed by the arrival of Sox - an autism dog from Dog's for the Disabled.

Superhero Sox is Toby's sidekick and now goes with him everywhere, helping to protect and calm him. Toby, his mum Vikky and dog Sox are here to tell us more.
