Sponsor Luca: Snoozy one moment, up and running the next
Luca loves to snooze. He goes into a deep sleep next to one of his toys, nose twitching, little puppy sides going in
and out. His Volunteer Puppy Trainer Louise tells us: “He likes to hide behind the long curtains to sleep. In
the evenings, when we’re all in the lounge, he pulls the sofa blanket down and snoozes under it. He emits
little snuffles and snores – it’s so cute!”
When he wakes up however, it’s a different story for a different puppy! He’s so confident, tail wagging

he’s going to be a real champion. All he needs is your support to see him through his training journey.
Will Luca become more snoozy as he grows, or more active? Will the hair scrunchie always be
his favourite toy or will he eventually chew that to bits too? And whose life will he turn around, helping a
deaf person to reconnect with the world around them? Sponsor Luca today and find out!
