Tumblr User Shares The Unbelievable Antics Of Her Family's Autism Support Dog

by Elana

Sometimes when I watch my dog hork down an inedible object as if it were a piece of rime roast beef I highly doubt the intelligence of dogs, but science would disagree with my perplexed facial expression. In fact, according to research by animal psychologists, dogs are at least as intelligent as 2-year old children! In an article by telegraph, research shared about dog intelligence included that "dogs are capable of understanding up to 250 words and gestures, can count up to five and can perform simple mathematical calculations."

That's the average dog, by the way. Some dogs are a lot more intelligent, and the dog we're going to share with you today definitely fits the bill of above average intelligence. Awren is a service dog, specifically trained to help assist autistic individuals, but Awren's intelligence is practically unparalleled. Based on the stories her family shared on Tumblr, she is prone to some of the most unbelievable shenanigans we've ever heard of a dog getting into. You have to read it with your own two eyes to grasp the magnitude of it all, really!

From the moment Awren came on the scene, she was a wild card. Still, the family had no clue what they were truly in store for.
