Canine visits bring lots of joy and a therapeutic affect…
Canine Duo Doris and Leo come to visit us #WoodleyGrange, as they enjoy coming to meet everyone to say hello. Doris is lovely but a little greedy and needy she loves cuddles and is very caring. She also loves biscuits but should not have too many. If you have noticed a shortage of biscuits over the last few months it is probably down to Doris!
Leo is a little bit more lively he loves to chew things at home and has munched his way through a few slippers! However, he has had a very calming influence on Doris since she came to live with him.
The residents look forward to Doris & Leo coming through the door as it creates an excitement in the home with residents wanting to feel and cuddle the canine friends. The bond between them has become an amazing scene to observe.
Doris and Leo were both street dogs from Greece. Doris is 18 months old and has been in England for 6 months. Leo is 2 and a half and has lived in England for 18 months. Doris was found in a dustbin at 3 weeks old with his sisters who are still awaiting homes. Leo was born in a sanctuary after his mum was found left in a dustbin.
Both dogs were taken in by the Strays of Greece animal shelter – website www.straysofgreece.org – they were both looked after until they were found homes here in England.
