Andy told us that Teddy has also been visiting people who have suffered a debilitating stroke and believes the therapeutic effects can sometimes be noticed immediately. He told us that both him and Teddy have found a new purpose and love volunteering for Pets As Therapy.
“I always tell people I rescued Ted and Ted rescued me. We certainly do have a special bond. Teddy barked and was then placed on my chest and soon after I woke up. He’s my guardian angel. I was so surprised to see Ted, I was made up. He’s my best mate.”
Andy is still recovering, but we know with the help of Teddy, he’s sure to do some amazing work.
