Dog comforts child during MRI scans, procedure

- A dog named Mahe is showing the world what it means to be a true service dog.

Nine-year-old James Isaac suffers from autism, but thankfully his loyal dog is providing comfort during his long visits in the hospital.

New Zealand Photographer Louise Goossens captured the incredible moment as Mahe lay in the bed beside Isaac, keeping the little boy calm and safe before and after his procedure.
