In this brand new series, six dogs are selected from rescue centres around the UK and paired with six people with disabilities. Aided by two of the country's top dog trainers, the aim is to transform these canine companions into brilliant disability helper dogs. But with just 12 weeks to bond, live and train together, can their lives be changed forever? Specialist dog trainers Jo-Rosie Haffenden and Nando Brown have been scouring the kennels of the Dogs Trust and Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, assessing over 100 different waifs and strays for their suitability.

Episode 1x3; Jun 22, 2016
Paula, who lives in Manchester, has a faulty immune system, while Ellie, is a second year student with cerebral palsy. Paula has been using a wheelchair for over 20 years and is independent and lives on her own. A dog would not only be able to help her with challenging daily tasks, but would provide her with invaluable companionship. She's matched up with a Staffie called Stanley. Ellie loves the idea of rescuing a new dog as the support she so desperately needs as she becomes an independent adult. But is a rescue puppy Zamba really the answer?
