DAVE (OUR MASCOT)

Chief sleeper and sausage eater

I'm Dave the rottweiler. I am a member of the UK Olympic Sleeping Team and have my own fan club. My favourite things include sausages and arguing with my mum.

Although Dave sadly left us last year, he will remain part of the team and forever our mascot.


Greatly missed ❤️ 

SMILEYSTAN, V.GB (VERY GOODBOY)

AttentionHound

Stan joined Care in December 2023 and is quickly making a name for himself as the resident Attentionhound. Hardly a minute goes by when he’s not being informed of how god damn beautiful he is. 


Stan is a very smiley person and can be seen here giving Tom Cruise a run for his money. 


He’s also very athletic. 

Stan has a little etiquette still to learn but we think he'll do just fine. 


Like most dogs Stan is food oriented and will do cartwheels for a sausage. Stan loves to learn new tricks and a quick learner. Sliding doors are easypeasy as some of you already know! He’s working on key codes next. After that…..local elections? Watch this space.
