Napier man Murray Whittington, who is hearing-disabled and has struggled to find a new rental home for him and his hearing dog Frodo, has found a reason to smile again. He has a new home to go to.
For the past couple of years, Mr Whittington has been living under a cloud of uncertainty as he struggled to find somewhere affordable and where the rental company or landlord would allow him to keep Frodo with him.
Mr Whittington said he had struck a series of dead ends as he tried to find somewhere to live after the owners of his former rental home, where he had lived for nearly 10 years, sold up.
