Name: Jagger

Job title: Foster Brother

Company: Chained Dog Rehabilitation & Rehoming

​About: "Jagger is a rescue who helps us with all our foster dogs. From puppies to littles, from confident to the most shut down dogs you’ll meet. He loves them all. He is calm, patient and very tolerant even when they are growling him because they don’t know better. He lies with them and helps them understand that they are ok now and there’s nothing to fear.

What makes this so special is that Jagger is not like this with all dogs. He can be a bit reactive, which is something we are working on. But when it comes to the foster dogs he just KNOWS they need him to help show them the way, in a way only dogs can and humans can’t."

Name: Wren

Job title: Mobility Dog

​About: "Wren is my mobility dog. I had AML leukaemia at 3 1/2 years old. I had a bone marrow transplant to get rid of my cancer but it left me in a wheelchair.

During my last year of high school in 2018, I was paired with mobility dog Wren who has been my lifesaver. She has given me the confidence and independence I did not have before. She has allowed me to live a life of happiness, having her by my side, knowing she's there for me. I can't imagine my life without her.

Wren helps me physically, such as picking things up, opening doors, barking on command, and more. Wren isn't just my mobility dog; she's my best friend. If I'm down, she never fails to make me smile. I love her so much."

Name: Mino

Job title: Happiness Maker

Company: Home Office!

​About: "Mino is a people person. Since day one coming home with us, he knew his job is to energise us and keep us happy, especially helping me feel less stress throughout my career’s depression time. Though it’s only been just over 4 months with him, I feel it’s the best time of my life and my health improved a lot with less migraines or vertigo. Mino’s job is simply giving unconditional love to his humans."
