Young Boy With Autism Delights at Sight of New Best Friend

Six-year-old Elijah was delighted to meet a new best friend, Ziggy the pup, for the first time in his San Jose, California, home. A teary Elijah, who has autism, can be seen hugging his dad Isaih in thanks before greeting the puppy, in the video uploaded to Twitter. “He has a really hard time making friends,” his mom Judie Apolinar told Storyful, “we always wanted to get him a dog so he would have a companion other than us (his parents).” Credit: Judie Apolinar via Storyful
