Wendy, a labrador cross retriever, is being trained to become an assistance dog to help children and adults living with mental and physical disabilities.

Money raised through coffee mornings and 'pupcake' sales will continue to support Wendy through the first year with her puppy socialiser.

Helen Tyler, from Barking Mad South Norfolk said: 'We are delighted that Barking Mad's fundraising efforts have been rewarded with the opportunity to support and train another puppy.

'We are honoured to be able to help contribute to the amazing work which this inspirational charity undertakes.'
