New assistance dogs charity launch
Hounds for Heroes, a new charity centre has been launched in Hampshire where dogs are being trained as assistance canines for injured military and emergency service personnel, according to the BBC News.
The charity was set up by veteran of the first Gulf War whose assistance dog helped him recover from the injuries suffered in a car crash in 1991. The accident that happened when he was on service left him partially paralysed. What is more he suffered from depression and amnesia. His service dog helped him to recover by assisting his owner in every day activities. The Labrador died two years ago and his owner decided to launch the charity to train other dogs to help disabled people to recover from their injuries.
