Labrador X Golden Retriever
Gorgeous Labrador X Golden Retriever puppy Ariel is a confident girl who loves to find toys to keep in her bed. Follow her on her journey to becoming an expertly trained assistance dog who will support someone with autism, physical disabilities, learning disabilities or dementia, empowering them to live a more independent life.
Yellow Labrador puppy Dolly is a lovely, affectionate girl with a really cheeky streak. Once she has completed her assistance dog training at our centre in Banbury, she will go on to support someone with autism, physical disabilities, learning disabilities or dementia, empowering them to live a more independent life.
Why Sponsor a Puppy?
Imagine if everyday tasks were so challenging or physically demanding they affected your quality of life. For many people living with a disability or families with a child with autism in the UK today, that is their reality. A quarter of disabled people say they do not frequently have choice and control over their daily lives; when to get dressed, when to go out, when to do the everyday things that we all take for granted. Parents with an autistic child have been proven to have stress levels comparable to soldiers in armed combat.
Now imagine if this adorable puppy could become a specially trained four-legged friend to restore your, or your family’s, independence.
