A friend in need


Please could you point me in the right direction?

I am looking for an assistance dog for my friend's little boy who is in a wheelchair and has special needs. The family sadly lost their pet dog last year and really would like a dog that could help their son in friendship and in his everyday needs.

We have already approached Canine Partners but they do not supply dogs unless you are 18 or over, and this little boy is only five years old.

Thank you for any help on this matter.

Kindest regards,

Caroline King, by email

  1. I would suspect that few charities would be willing to supply such a young child with an assistance dog due to the current (and wholly correct) UK law regarding the age one is considered able to handle a dog.
