Our new assistance dog Sherlock

In line with our continued Made for Life philosophy, Canon Medical extends our support to other areas beyond medical imaging, with the aim to build stronger and more successful communities. Our support to Assistance Dogs Australia is one of these initiatives.

Sherlock is the third assistance dog we have sponsored. With a compelling name that speaks of adventure, our adorable Sherlock has started his journey toward a whole new world. He will undergo training for two years to equip him with the right skills so that one day, he will make someone smile with his cuddles, kisses and antics. One day, Sherlock will change the life of someone living with a disability!

Watch the video below to get a sneak peek of Sherlock's daily life. Connect with us on Instagram for more exciting pupdates!

Where’s Shiba now?

Our super skilled dog Shiba was the first puppy we adopted in 2015. She came from a strong heritage - both her parents were Assistance Dogs. She completed her training with flying colours and graduated in October 2017. Shiba is considered a pioneer in this particular pairing. She now has a home with a young woman on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and together, they are flourishing.

Assistance Dogs Australia

Assistance Dogs Australia provides freedom and independence to children and adults with disabilities. They train Labradors and Golden Retrievers to offer physical and emotional support to assist people with:

  • Physical disabilities
  • Autism
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Dementia
  • Children with special needs and elderly in care homes

Assistance Dogs increase independence, reduce reliance on human caregivers and act as a great ice-breaker helping overcome social isolation.
