Awesome pug Alfie helps Paul care for his partner Jane who has MS. Little star Alfie helps Jane stand, and soothes and supports her if she begins choking, as well as alerting Paul.
Alfie isn't a formal assistance dog, but he's an invaluable help to Jane and Paul. He barks when alarms go off or the phone rings and lets Paul know if Jane needs her tablets, he's changed their lives and they wouldn't be without him. Have a look on Facebook for more on this adorable little guy and his family.
Carers really do come from all walks of life, or perhaps that should be 'walkies'!
