Graham and Red (Yellow Labrador)
Partnered 2013, retired 2019
"All I can say is Thank You for giving me my life back."
Graham suffered a back injury while in the RAF. He left the service at the rank of corporal after twelve and a half years.
Before I had Red I was stuck in my house. I was depressed and had withdrawn from society. Red changed my life and filled my house with joy. When I was out with him, people spoke to him and then to me. He’s brought a whole social life back.
He helps every day. He takes my socks off, gets the post, takes the washing out of the basket and passes it to me. He opens doors and the back gate, pulls cords I can’t reach. All the support from Hounds for Heroes for the last five years has been first class, everything Red needs and support as well.
All I can say is Thank You for giving me my life back.
