Woman with spinal muscular atrophy has her life transformed with the help of her Labrador – Daily Mail

A Labrador has transformed his disabled owner’s life by learning how to pay at tills, load the laundry and collect money from cash machines.

Chloe Bellotti, 29, from Suffolk, suffers with spinal muscular atrophy – a genetic condition that causes muscle weakness – meaning she relies on an electric wheelchair for mobility and requires around the clock care.

But optimistic Chloe cannot thank her assistant dog Morris, five, enough for giving her ‘normality and independence’ for the first time in almost three decades.

Chloe can now carry out day to day duties with the help of her black Labrador who is able to load the washing machine, collect money from the ATM and even pay for the groceries – to name a few.

Chloe said: ‘Every day I am left in awe of what Morris could do, and how this sweet boy simply wanted to please me.

‘I had always dreamed of being able to do the things I used to do before life became such a struggle. But never in a million years did I anticipate that it could actually happen; then came Morris.

‘It’s the little things I notice most, like being able to open and close doors through Morris rather than asking for assistance of others, or how he patiently picks up an item that I’ve dropped five times already because my hands are not working well that day.
