Patsy - Part of the team

Patsy was Prue’s Golden Labrador, greeting all visitors to Dorothy House, she was a full member of the team. The patients all loved having Patsy around, and she helped create a special environment. Whenever anyone was struggling or upset, Patsy would walk quietly over to their chair or bedside and lie down beside them, her presence alone bringing comfort and respite.
