CARTER, a golden doodle, paid a whistle stop visit to the Beverley Building Society to collect a cheque for winning Charity of the Month competition.
Carter, a 20 month old mixture of a Golden Retriever and a Standard Poodle, visited the branch to collect a £250 donation.
Mike Cormack, a volunteer for Canine Partners and Carter’s Puppy Parent said: “Carter is adorable, he always has a smile on his face and he really does have the wow factor so it takes me a long time to get around the shops with him.
“Carter has been trained to perform lots of core behaviours which will eventually be fine-tuned to enable his to work as an assistance dog for someone with disabilities.”
In January Carter will go on an advanced training course where he will learn how to assist with tasks such as opening doors and unloading the washing machine. Once he has completed his training he will be matched with a suitable partner to help with practical everyday tasks and provide a special companion.
The Charity of the Month Competition is now in its 11th month, so far raising a total of £2500 for local causes such as the Canine Partners.
