Residents at the Amavir El Encinar del Rey home in Valladolid took in the unwanted pup over the festive period, where he will remain until he finds his forever home. 

They have ‘fallen in love’ with Agus, a one year old beagle described as ‘a very good and caring boy’. 

Agus takes part in activities with the residents such as walks, shopping and art therapy classes. 

He has been welcomed with open arms as part of a collaboration with the local council to bring dogs into residential homes.

According to the Centro Caninno Municipal: “It’s a two way therapy for both the dog and the residents. They both benefit from each other’s company.”
