London, Jan 3 (ANI): A six-year-old Leonberger might look like an ordinary dog, but his actions are undoubtedly extra ordinary.

Guide dog Cavendish does household jobs like emptying the washing machine and fetching the phone.

The dog first joined cerebral palsy sufferer owner Dr Nicola Hendey, of Ruddington, Notts, as a canine partner, helping her in household tasks.

The 45-year-old university researcher then decided to find out if the dog could also complete rigorous guide dog schooling.

Experts thought it to be impossible, but Cavendish turned out to be so intelligent that he completed the yearlong course in just five months.

Cav is a truly amazing dog. I really dont know what I would do without him. He has helped me cope with everything, The Sun quoted Hendey, as saying. (ANI)
