  • DFS Crufts 2010 Friends For Life - Dave & Treo

  • Vote for Sergeant Dave Heyhoe and TREO - Call 0844 646 02 02*

    Treo is an eight-year-old Labrador who has been an AES (Arms Explosive Dog) since he was two. He is trained to search weapons and explosives his mission is to search in operational theatres such as Afghanistan. Treo had completed operational tasks before, but during March 2008 was deployed to the notorious Helmand Province to search for weapons and munitions concealed by the Taliban.

    In mid-August 2008, in Sangin, Treo located a daisy chain improvised explosive device that had been carefully concealed at the side of a path where soldiers were about to pass. Had he not located the device, the passing infantry soldiers would have certainly suffered casualties because the device was booby trapped to go off as they passed.

    On 3 and 4 September 2008, Treo once again located an IED, saving 7 Platoon, The Royal Irish Regiment, from guaranteed casualties. Again in lead position, the dog successfully identified the device and saved the lives of soldiers and civilians alike.

    He has made an outstanding contribution to the armys efforts in Afghanistan, saving lives and inspiring confidence and morale in the soldiers around him.

    On 24 February 2010, in a special ceremony held at the Imperial War Museum, London, Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra presented a Dickin Medal recognised worldwide as the animals Victoria Cross to Treo, a military working dog.

  • DFS Crufts 2010 Friends For Life - Sam & Josie

  • Vote for Sam & Josie - Call 0844 646 02 03*

    The Daly Family sat glued to the television on a wet cold day in March 2006 watching Crufts and the Friends for Life competition featuring Daniel George and his assistance dog Yogi. This struck a particular chord as their eldest son, Sam, had just been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy the same life-limiting condition as Daniel that gradually wastes the muscles of those affected.

    An application was submitted in 2008 when Sam was seven years old the earliest that Dogs for the Disabled train assistance dogs for children with physical disabilities.

    Finally, in spring 2009, the call came to say that Sam would be matched with Josie, a Labrador who wanted to be everybodys friend. It was great to see Sam looking forward to something again.

    At home, Sams family really began to see the changes in his confidence and a renewal of his enjoyment in the outside world.

    Josie is now the best friend he ever wanted and the pair are inseparable.
