Britain is considered a nation of animal lovers, so why should this be any different if we have to move into a care home?

As you can see from all our pet therapy stories, a dog’s silly antics and wagging tail can raise a smile or relax anyone, regardless of age.

There were plenty of cuddles when Activity Coordinator Vicky brought her dog Roxi to visit the residents at The Elms Care Home in Hull.

There were smiles all around as Roxi welcomed the attention and the odd treat from the residents.

The visit from Roxi was enjoyed by all the residents, and Victoria has already been asked when Roxi will be coming back for another visit.
