Gus the Fox Red Lab pup meets fellow pupils

Gus the puppy is already proving really popular at his new inspirational school workplace.

The 12-week old Fox Red Labrador pup will now be the working dog for Ashcombe Primary School in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.

Gus is already becoming a star attraction among the 630 pupils.

Headteacher John Clark said: “Having a dog in a school is a wonderful thing for pupils and staff. We are a real community and dogs have been proven to help calm children and help them through a range of learning issues.”
