The sisters are trainee pups for Dogs for the Disabled - an Irish charity that specially trains dogs to assist people with physical disabilities.

And recently Ivy’s owners set her up with her very own Facebook page

The page, which was set up at the start of this month, explains the training process of Ivy and Jasmine:

Starting their lives in The Dochas Centre at Mountjoy Prison, Ivy and her brothers and sisters then leave The Dochas to live in homes around Ireland, with families who socialise them, before they move to Shelton Abbey at approximately 16 months to be trained by inmates as part of another unique initiative Irish Dogs for the Disabled started, that of getting young prisoners at Shelton Abbey open prison to become dog walkers.

The charity first came to prominence on the Late Late last year, when Olivia and Lauren shared their stories

Ivy will be specially trained to assist a physically disabled person to carry out a range of practical tasks in order to achieve greater independence.

Now you can follow the day-to-day exploits of Ivy and Jasmine on Facebook as they start their journey
