Group brings unique service to Teaneck boy

The organization Merlin's Kids brought its unique service to New Jersey Friday to match a boy with special needs and a canine companion.

Merlin's Kids came to Teaneck to match 12-year-old Brian Tuch with a four-legged friend. Wolfe brought her evaluator dog, a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Wyatt, to help.

The Teaneck fifth grader's development was stunted by cancer treatments. Tuch's parents hopes to find a dog that can build his confidence and teach him responsibility.
