Residents at an Arnold residential home has welcomed a new visitor– a four-legged one.
Sid, who is a 14-week-old Labrador and Retriever cross breed, has made his first visit to The Beeches care home this week to cheer up residents.
Sid managed to put a huge smile on all of the faces of the homes colleagues and residents. There are plenty of dog lovers at the home so it was a real treat to see such a gorgeous puppy.
One of the Residents commented “Sid is lovely, he’s so soft and gentle for a puppy. It’s made me think about the dogs me and my husband had.”
The home manager said “it’s great to see Sid socialising with the Residents. He’s only 14 weeks old so loves to play. Lots of our Residents were chatting about their pets too.”
“It’s great to see how much a puppy visiting the home can stir up memories for the Residents of their own pets they have had. Everybody’s faces just lit up when Sid came bundling into the room.”
Sid is hoping to return to the home soon and the Residents can’t wait to see him again and watch him grow.
