He loves Batman, St Kilda Football Club and learning new things. Alex is now thirteen and in Year 8 at Weeroona College Bendigo. He longs to be more independent as he gets about in his wheelchair.

A Smart Pup will enable Alex to gain that extra independence. He can cross roads safely, find his way around, an item dropped can be picked up, doors can be opened and lights switched on.. just a few of the practical ways his Smart Pup can help.

In addition his Smart Pup can be trained to give Alex a gentle nudge when he gets a lean on one side of his chair and to recognise if Alex is having an epileptic seizure, seeking help. Most of all in having a Smart Pup companion, Alex will always have a Best Friend nearby.

Your donation will be greatly appreciated no matter how big or small. This organisation is a non for-profit organisation. The training for the pup can take 12-14 months but it is intense, and these dogs are just incredible.

We are asked to raise $20,000 before training can begin. People who know and love Alex often ask how they can help. Here is an opportunity. Any contribution, however small, would be very much appreciated in helping us to reach this target.

    Alex is a relative of mine and I know he would enjoy and benefit greatly from having a Smart Pup by his side.

    Hi Alex,
    I saw your picture here, and thought we knew you.. We went swimming with our son Elton on the same day you do your lessons. We are always delighted to see your hard work in learning how to swim..
    We hope you get your dog soon!!! Leanna, Gus, and Elton.
