Tyne & Wear
Mr R, Sunderland: Both Mr R and his wife are registered blind and don’t get out any more so they’re understandably feeling increasingly isolated. They’ve missed their last dog terribly and they would really love friends with two and with four legs to visit regularly. They had a German Shepherd but any shape or size of new friend will be really welcome.
Mr P, Newcastle: Mr P lives alone in his own home, he’s managing worsening memory issues and as a huge dog lover, he misses their company. His last dog was a much loved Alsatian and her loss is still very painful for him. He would really like a visit from a female dog, he feels he connects best with them and ideally of course a larger breed. Won’t it be special to reconnect him with a new friend.
Mr S, Barnard Castle: Mr S lives with his partner near Barnard Castle. He has always worked with and trained dogs so now that’s he’s unable to have a dog of his own, he misses them terribly. Mr S is also managing some difficult health issues which affect his ability to communicate so it’s hoped that because of his special emotional connection with dogs, when he has regular contact with a dog again it will really enrich his life and have a positive impact on his health and wellbeing.
