January 14, 2011, Coventry, UK]----This remarkable dog gives true meaning to the phrase, 'dog is man's best friend.'
A 4 year old dog named Sandie is literally her owner's best friend and helper. She reportedly shops, does housekeeping and practically everything her owner needs help with, since she was just a tender 3 month old pup.
Sandie, who is a cross between a Sheltie-collie mom and a Staffordshire bull terrier dad, has been helping her owner, Sue Line of Coventry, UK, almost all of her life with the chores Line cannot do for herslef.
61 year old Line has been paralyzed from the waist down for 40 years, a result of a vehicular accident, reports the Daily Mail.
So she relies heavily on Sandie to help her. The little trooper reportedly helps her with grocery shopping, even taking money from Line's purse with her mouth and handing it to the cashier. She also carries arround the groceries in a bag held by her mouth.
Sandie's skills do not end there. She reportedly can load the laundry, even sorts light from dark and her personal bathroom habit is said to be perfectly under control. She can let herself out to do her private business and has mastered locking thedoor behind her when she returns!
How did Sandie become such an expert at mastering "human habits?" Her owner Line reportedly said her sister did most of the training with the assistance of a local dog training club and Dog AID, a British dog charity.
