Griffin the adorable golden retriever will do anything for disabled owner Clare Syversten. From loading the dishwasher and pressing the buttons at road crossings to flushing the toilet, it’s all in a day’s work for this loyal pup.
The 26-year-old woman from Northolt, England suffers from the degenerative tissue condition Ehlers Danlos syndrome. She says the slightest movement causes her joints to dislocate. She felt helpless — until she finally found her faithful canine companion.
She met Griffin through the charity Canine Partners, who match assistance dogs with disabled owners to make their lives easier. They’ve been inseparable for nearly two years now.
In the video, Syversten and her dog are seen going through a typical day. At one point, they head to the grocery store, where Griffin presents Syversten’s purse to the cashier and even helps her reach items on the higher shelves.
Opening up about her super dog, Syversten gushes about the positive impact the dog has had on her life.
“Being a wheelchair user, people just ignore you when you go past. Now, I’ve got Griffin. I’d be lost without him. He’s made everything happier,” she says, wiping tears from her eyes.
