Luckily, the two dogs hit it off immediately, which was extremely important to Alice.
Fearlessly independent with Winter by her side
Alice & Winter
Alice has a variety of challenging conditions including brittle bones, Ehlers Danlos syndrome and POTS. Her life changed when Bella became her companion. Bella’s calming influence, practical help and limitless devotion helped Alice through her many surgeries and treatments. When Bella retired, Winter leapt into the role.
"She’s my funny, beautiful, clever girl and she’s got my back. Even though I couldn’t love her any more than I already do, I feel like our bond gets better and better every day."
Winter’s specially trained to help Alice change her clothes, fetch dropped items and push access buttons.
After being paired during lockdown, Alice is now able to take Winter further afield and “go on adventures” together.
