Family pet

Do you recommend this for an 8 y/o boy with asperger’s?

i saw if he shows responsibility and caring (even if his expressions/verbals are off) then absolutely because most aspies are high functioning and are good with routines like feeding walking etc, plus it is a non judging companion…if you feel feel your chid would be able to handle the responsibility (with parental guidance of course) and care for the pet then do it

thanks so much for your response.
We’re picking up our new family member (Hannah, a corgi), this Saturday. Our son is so excited. I’ll keep you posted on how things are going.
