Zack was diagnosed with polymicrogyria which causes him to have seizures.  These seizures have taken their toll on Zack so while he is 15 years old, he’s developmentally more like a 5 year old. We got Moby to be Zack’s seizure dog and he’s become so much more in such a short time.  Zack brought Moby Home on October 1st and they quickly became best friends.  Every morning Zack wakes up, he asks where’s his dog and jumps out of bed to kiss Moby. Moby has changed our lives so much since he’s entered our lives. Zack has taken on the responsibility of feeding and taking Moby on afternoon walks with his caregiver and most importantly, Moby alerts me when Zack is going to have a seizure.  The first time Zack seized when we had Moby, Moby ran around in circles till I went and acknowledged that Zack was on the floor. Immediately after, Moby calmed down and laid down next to Zack till he was alert.  As their bond grows, Moby can sometimes detect a large seizure before it happens.  He is able to alert me so I can get Zack to a safe place.  Having Moby has given Zack so much independence and confidence that I can’t thank Merlin’s KIDS enough for letting us be a part of Moby’s life.
