Carer Category Finalist
I was a Police Officer for 21 years. I damaged my leg, was diagnosed with severe PTSD and almost committing suicide. I went to Service Dogs UK in desperation and was sceptical that a dog could help me. I met Bert who looked deep down in my soul and he just knew I needed saving.
Bert is a rescue himself – he was saved by Dogs Trust and Service Dogs saw his potential as a service dog. He saved me that day: and I’m forever indebted to him.
We’ve been partnered now for two years and he’s turned my life around. He’s a goofball but also sensitive to my needs: he’s amazing and deserves this SuperDog Award and to say thank you my pal.
