Yogi & Daniel

Yogi, owned by Daniel George from Hebburn, Tyne & Wear and nominated by Dogs for the Disabled – Dog for the disabled turned guardian angel

Unlike most boys his age, Daniel (age 12) can't just get up and go anywhere that he chooses as he has a severe condition called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which affects and limits every aspect of Daniel's life. He is only the third child in the UK to have an assistance dog trained especially for him as part of the Dogs for the Disabled children's project. Yogi a three year old, chocolate Labrador has improved Daniel's confidence and independence incredibly as Daniel doesn't have to rely on other people all the time to help him with every day tasks from helping him undress to turning off his bedroom light when he goes to bed. Yogi has become a new and positive focus for Daniel and his family. Daniel has a new friend and helper, his brother and sister have a rough and tumble play-mate and his mum has someone that makes her smile.
