Bull Point residential care home in Plymouth has hosted its own version of Crufts, to celebrate the birthday of one of its canine residents.
Holly the Shih Tzu, who belongs to Jodie, turned 8 recently, and to celebrate the occasion, staff and residents organised a dog show in her honour. Staff members and their dogs were invited to the event which was styled on internationally renowned Crufts.
The team arranged for an authentic dog show experience, by awarding rosettes, and giving prizes for categories such as ‘best in show’.
Bull Point in Barne Barton, Plymouth, is a specialist provider of residential services for people with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder with or without associated learning disability. The property is registered for up to five service users and is operated by Modus Care Group, part of Salutem Healthcare.
Sharon Field, registered manager of Bull Point, said: “The dog show was a fantastic opportunity to get together and have a bit of fun.
“At Bull Point, we’re absolutely committed to delivering first rate care and enabling our service users to live their very best lives.
“Pets can play a huge role in providing comfort and stimulation for those living with complex needs, so we also have two sensory cats at Bull Point.”
