Sponsor Crystal today and help her save a life
From just £5 a month you can sponsor a Medical Detection Dog puppy on their journey from a bundle of fur to a fully qualified Medical Detection Dog.
Support us in our 15th Anniversary year by sponsoring the newest member to the MDD team, Crystal, our 15th Anniversary super-star.
Likes: Playing with my toys!
Dislikes: Having to wait to go on big adventures until I’m fully vaccinated.
Crystal is already settling in well to her new life with her Socialisers, they think she’s a little gem!
Soon Crystal will start attending our puppy creche at the Centre, which really is as fun as it sounds! She and her new friends will get to play in a big room full of toys, as well as explore new and interesting objects all whilst getting lots of praise and treats!
With the support of her Socialisers and Trainer she will be taught the life skills she will need to become a Medical Detection Dog. We’re certain that she will quickly pick up some of the core behaviours she will need whilst still enjoying being a puppy and discovering the world around her.
We’re delighted to have her as part of the team. Good Luck Crystal!

The difference a sponsor puppy can make
Elizabeth’s journey with PoTS has been a rocky one to say the least. She only appeared to have black out episodes whilst doing judo and used to get some kind of warning beforehand. As time passed she began to feel more unwell in day to day life; was always extremely tired and dizzy, ached constantly, and had frequent heart palpitations and chest pain. Her black outs also started happening more and more frequently without warning, and whilst doing daily activities, such as school, shopping or watching TV. Elizabeth also had a fair few bad injures and concussions from dropping suddenly. Henry and Elizabeth were partnered up and ready to give it a whirl in the real world. Elizabeth was blown away how much more relaxed, calm and safe her episodes were. Henry would alert, she’d sit down, and everything would run its course smoothly; no injuries or drama. With time his alerting became really strong and he hardly missed any episodes! Henry has allowed Elizabeth to take her independence back and start living! He’s her wet nosed knight in shining armour and she couldn’t be more grateful to him.
