Hi, I’m Winnie. I’m a happy and playful puppy and with your help, I can become a life-saving Medical Detection Dog.
Likes: Belly rubs!
Dislikes: Being wet and cold after a bath
Winnie is a sweet and affectionate young medical detection dog in training and we are delighted to have her on board. Winnie has settled in quickly to her new life in a village not far from the Centre, and has already made friends with her Socialiser’s cat! Winnie is a quick learner, and a natural born retriever, always carrying a toy. Her only downside is that she snores a lot, but even that’s very cute.
We are very happy to welcome another Labrador to the team, Winnie has some big paws to fill! Clients in need of one of our dogs have a wide range of personal circumstances but Labradors have the ideal temperament and characteristics to suit most people. This, alongside Winnie’s love of people, and enthusiasm means she has become an excellent member of the Medical Detection Dogs family. Good luck, Winnie!
By sponsoring Winnie today, you can help change lives, and be part of Nora’s journey to becoming a life-saving Medical Detection Dog.

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.
