Cute pooch Harvey and Alyssa Stirling, three, have formed a close bond since the dog became her pet.
And now her family has launched a bid to get this adorable Labrador trained to be an autism support dog.
They are hoping to raise £6,000 to have the 13-week-old pup trained to be Alyssa’s personal helper.
If successful, he will assist, befriend, comfort, alert, support and give unconditional love to his little friend.
He will also be trained to protect her if she is ever in danger.
Mum Elise, from Polmont, near Falkirk, said: “Seeing the difference that Harvey has made in her life already gives me confidence that he will have an enormous impact on her life.”
