...and I’m a Dementia Assistance Dog. As part of the Dementia Assistance Dogs Pilot Scheme I receive special training to support people living with dementia. I help family carers to look out for the well-being of their loved ones living with dementia and make a real difference to their quality of life.
My canine chums and I need to raise £30,000 to complete the pilot scheme and allow Alzheimer Scotland to measure just how much of a difference dogs like us make and find out how we can help more people living with dementia.
Getting involved is simple and fun – I want to know what your dog is thinking. Join the fun on Facebook and Twitter by posting your dog selfie using the hashtag #Alex4Paws. Once you’ve posted, make sure to nominate four dog owner friends and then donate £4 by texting BARK04 £4 to 70070 (or £10 if you like!). It couldn’t be easier! You can also donate online if you prefer. To make things easier, why not print out our doggy thought bubble.
With your support a dog like me can continue to help people living with and affected by dementia.
Lots of big sloppy dog licks!
