Sponsor Nora

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

Breed: Labrador 

Gender: Female

Colour: Black

Likes: A belly rub!

Dislikes: Having to wait to go on big adventures until I’m fully vaccinated.

Meet Winnie. She is the latest edition to the MDD team.  

Winnie is quickly settling in to her new life in a village not far from the Centre, and has already made friends with her Socialiser’s cat!  

Winnie’s very affectionate, rolling over for belly rubs at every opportunity.  She’s a natural born retriever, always carrying a toy.  Her only downside is that she snores a lot, but even that’s very cute! 

Winnie has been coming to puppy creche, which is as fun as it sounds; she and her new friends get to play in a big room full of toys there are new, interesting objects to explore and lots of treats for being good boys and girls. 

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. Soon she will start to be taught the life skills she will need to become a Medical Detection Dog with the support of her Socialisers and Trainer. We’re delighted to have her as part of the team. Good luck Winnie! 

By sponsoring Winnie today, you can help change lives, and be part of Winnie’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.
