Dog charity which helps military veterans named UK’s favourite

A Scottish charity that pairs dogs with military veterans to help them to adjust to civilian life has been named the nation’s favourite.

Bravehound was launched in 2016 to provide support and companionship for veterans dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other difficulties adjusting to life outside the military.

Veteran Mick McConnell, who lost a leg while serving in Afghanistan, received Sasha, a sprocker spaniel from the charity earlier this year.
