CENTRAL POINT, Ore.-- Dogs for the Deaf said its second autism dog placement is doing great. The non-profit recently placed Yoko with a Rogue Valley family whose son has autism.

"Any young child enjoys getting a dog, and if a dog is going to be helping you with a condition that you have, obviously it makes the bond that much stronger," CEO Blake Matray said.

Dogs for the Deaf is still focusing on local families for the autistic program, and eventually, will open it up to the state of Oregon. If you are interested, contact the non-profit.
