We’d like to give a big warm welcome to our newest TheraPaws canine recruits! They will be joining our super troop of dogs and volunteers who go on regular visits to care homes, day centres, hospices and hospitals across North and West London.
Ziggy is a loveable, cuddly dog (pictured above) who can’t wait to bring joy to residents at a care home on the Hammersmith area.
This 10 year old gentle giant Old English Sheepdog is visiting Fernbank Nursing Home in West Finchley, who care for people with dementia. Susie loves coming up to people and saying hello and then flopping to the floor, asking for belly rubs. She has already been on her first visit and was a star.
Already a famous Instagram dog, Java the Corgi is now a registered TheraPaws dog and such a sweetheart. Java sailed through the assessment and is now waiting to start visits at a hospice, where he will be sure to bring the residents a lot of joy. Catch him on social media and see how his visits go.
Named so because of the black dots on his nose make him look like a chocolate chip cookie! Gorgeous Biscuit will be visiting a group of stroke survivors at the Kingsgate Resource Centre in West Hampstead.
