The Buddy System tells the intimate stories of three families touched by autism, who experience meaningful change when a specially trained assistance dog comes into each of their lives. This one-hour documentary also profiles the pioneering work of Patty Dobbs Gross, a self-described ‘autism mom,’ who first recognized the potential of dogs to support children on the spectrum twenty years ago when she saw how a “social dog” placement helped her son, Dan. Today her organization specializes in the breeding, training, and placement of autism service dogs with children who need them. Q&A after screening and puppies.
