By Robert Paul Reyes

"A video showing a Tempe woman being comforted by her service dog during a meltdown has gone viral.

The video was posted by Danielle Jacobs, 24, on June 1. It has since been viewed more than 3 million times.

In it, Jacobs is having what she describes as a self-harm meltdown while her Rottweiler Samson attempts to help her out of it."

This viral video doesn`t need any analysis or description, watch as Sampson the service dog helps Danielle cope with a meltdown due to Asperger`s syndrome.

Dogs aren`t a lifeline just for individuals with physical, mental or psychological problems; in this crazy world we all need the tender ministrations of a faithful, loyal and loving pooch.

I hope this video will inspire you to adopt a dog from your local animal shelter.
