Hero guide dog becomes face of vets
11:30am Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
A HERO guide dog has been chosen to be the face of her vets.
Jet was hailed a hero after she saved the life of her owner, Jessica Crowley and her one-year-old son Jacob when they were hit by a car outside My Pets’ Vets in Leigh.
After the accident, Jet was voted to feature on posters and leaflets around the surgery.
Caroline Purnell, a veterinary surgeon at the practice, said: “It is a competition we run every year and the pet that gets the most likes on Facebook wins. Jet got about 1,300 votes in a very short space of time. A lot of people had heard about what she had done.
“It is great though as it raises awareness of what giude dogs do and how important they are. Jet is a real sweetheart.”
Jet was awarded the honour at the vets’ open day that offered a behind the scenes look at the practice along with advice and face painting on September 29.
