The Surprises Won't Stop Coming for This Teen and His New Service Dog
When second-grade teacher Lacrecia Smith had to nominate someone for a random act of kindness, one name came to mind: Brandon Sudge.
“Of all the students I’ve taught, of all the years I’ve taught, Brandon just left a special impression on me,” Smith told WXIA. “He will always have a special place in my heart.”
Sudge, who was born with cerebral palsy, is now 16 and living in Buford, Georgia, with his brand new service dog, Mojo. Moving through his house in his wheelchair can be difficult because it doesn’t fit through every room’s door, and if Brandon, like most 16-year-olds, hopes to drive, his parents’ van would have to undergo costly renovations.
In the video below, that all changes. Watch as Brandon — and Mojo — get surprise after surprise after surprise, all in an effort to help the two become more independent.
