Capable Creatures: Lise's life saving dog - 2.31min

Southampton SO15 7NN, UK

Lise Maroon was going about her day as usual, when she was viciously attacked by a group of youths in Southampton. She suffered life changing injuries. Amid all the pain, depression and social phobia, she found hope for a better life by training her dog to meet her specific needs. Lise has now set up the charity Capable Creatures, to support other people to train their dogs specifically for their needs. Here she tells her story in brief, while on a regular walk on Southampton Common, SO14
