Oliver, designed by KornflakeStew, is based on a dog found tied up outside a hospital in London. He was in a dreadful state and was rushed to Battersea, where he was taken to the clinic and treated for malnutrition, a skin condition and an ear infection. The poodle was originally named St Thomas by staff. Battersea Rehoming and Welfare Manager said: “He had a keen sense of intelligence and a love of learning making him the perfect candidate to be an assistance dog. We did some training with him and he proved he had potential, so we got in touch with Medical Detection Dogs." The medical dog charity accepted him and he was sent to live with a volunteer to train him.
