After she fully recovered, it was time for Xena to find a loving family. Linda, who is a mother to an autistic child called Jonny, had been captivated by Xena’s survival story from the beginning and was very keen to adopt Xena. Linda brought her family along when Xena made an appearance at a fundraiser event. Linda was thrilled when Xena came directly to interact with them affectionately, particularly with Jonny, and Xena was adopted soon afterwards.
Linda and her husband commented that Jonny had been a very shy boy and had numerous sensory issues before Xena came into their lives. Nowadays, Jonny has become quite the ‘chatter box’ and the pair are inseparable. Xena has effectively ‘soothed’ Jonny’s personal space hang ups and made him feel more secure in his natural surroundings. Regular day to day outings such a trip to the hair dresser have become a breeze. Jonny even allows Xena to sleep on his lap during nap time. Xena has essentially transformed Jonny’s life for the better. .. what an awesome puppy!
