Sponsor Indie today and help her save a life

Sponsor Indie from just £5 a month and you will receive a fantastic welcome pack and regular pupdates following her training.


Hi, I’m Indie. I’m a small and playful puppy and with your help, I can become a life-saving Medical Detection Dog.

Breed: Miniature Poodle

Gender: Female

Colour: Black and White

Likes: Cuddles and discovering my new home

Dislikes: Not being able to go wherever I want

Indie has just joined us and is our first Miniature Poodle. The breed is well known for their intelligence, so we expect Indie to learn the ropes very quickly indeed. Her trainer, Charlotte, will soon start to teach Indie all the life skills she will need to become a Medical Detection Dog. In just a few weeks, Charlotte will begin taking Indie out and about to new environments to socialise her with other dogs, as well as people, and to get her used to the world around her.

Indie is settling in to her new life already. As you can see from the short video clip, she was very happy to have a quick run at The Centre before heading off to her new home where she’ll soon become one of the family. Her socialiser, Karen is really looking forward to having her around the home and has plenty of experience having socialised dogs for us before.

We are also delighted that we can welcome a small breed to the team. Clients in need of one of our dogs have a wide range of personal circumstances to consider and some people are suited to a much smaller dog than say a Labrador or a Spaniel. Alongside her intelligence and abilities, we think her diminutive stature will make her an excellent member of the Medical Detection Dogs family. Good luck, Indie!

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.
