"The more you learn about Joy Lauffenburger and her dog, Goldie, the more amazed you will be.
Joy is an 18-year-old high school senior from Oklahoma who was diagnosed with autism as a 7-year-old. Goldie is her closest friend, a 9-year-old basenji mix who at one point was in a high-kill shelter, on the verge of being euthanized, and who has become a certified therapy and service dog. More, though, she has become the love of Joy's life."
