William the Care Home Dog
William the Care Home Dog is by far one of our most famous success stories!!
When John, seen here, moved into Invernevis care home in Fort William, he was allowed to take his beloved dog – Henry – with him. The first time a dog had ever been accepted!!
But, when Henry passed away, a huge gap was left in John’s life – and the lives of the other residents and care staff!
The search was on to find a very special canine friend, who would fit perfectly in this unique environment.
The charity was approached to see if we could help – lucky for all, we knew of a very special boy – a gentle and sensitive boy, who thrived on lots of attention from lots of different humans, and who would not be overwhelmed by the job ahead.
Cue William the Care Home Dog!!
This photograph was taken on his first night in the care home. After a care assistant had taken William for a nice long walk, he arrived back at the care home, found John’s bedroom and settled down for the night!
Best friends forever!!!
