Jeffree and Finn
For 13-year-old Finn Hackeson, who has Asperger syndrome, the sudden death of his dad was devastating. Finding it difficult to communicate, Finn became locked in a cycle of depression and despair. Then along came former stray Jeffree and the pair quickly formed a close bond, helping Finn come to terms with his loss and cope with everyday life.
