  1. Hi
    Molly is a black Labrador and Lois was a golden Labrador age 7 and 10 years, we brought them both from DOGS TRUST MERSEYSIDE (sisters) on a shared adoption programme due to conditions they both have. It was our first wedding anniversary last year and we decided to buy each other a Labrador, we knew what we were taking on and sadly Lois lost her life in January. Molly is devoted, cuddly and a gentle sole who has brought great friendship to my husband, Marc who has Cerebral Palsy, they are able to go for walks together, she lies on his lap and listens to every word.
    When Marc goes to work she never leaves my side, she is my companion and best friend. I hope you like the picture of our girls and if you are thinking of getting a lovely Labrador give DOGS TRUST a go, we did and we never regretted it!
