My name is Hero and I am one of the newest members of the St. John’s family. I am a cavapoochon, part of a breed that are specially bred as therapy dogs, due to our calm and child friendly temperament and our hypoallergenic fur.
I am still learning at the moment but have already developed a special bond with the children at St. John’s. I enjoy playing with groups of children and also like visits from children to the Bubble Room. I love cuddles and I like to comfort people when they are feeling sad. When I am fully trained, I will be used in our Bubble Room regularly to offer therapy and nurture to small groups of children.
Salford’s Animal Welfare team and Health and Safety inspectors have worked with school to ensure that both me and the children are happy and safe. I wear a lead at all times around school and have special places on each site for going to the toilet, away from any public areas.
I love meeting new people and hope you can come and play with me soon.
