A care home nurse became extremely emotional after seeing the positive effect a police puppy had on one of her elderly patients.

According to Mashable, 11-week-old Daisy was brought to Surbiton's Star and Garter care home in London by Kingston Police to meet the residents.

It was all a part of a presentation by Sergeant Tony Marshall on scams and crime prevention.

They took Daisy upstairs to meet some of the residents who, due to their limited mobility, were not able to get downstairs to meet the other police dogs.

Daisy was placed on Muriel's - who according to Mashable is "normally very quiet and doesn't show much emotion" - bed and she "lit up."

"It was a great privilege to be able to talk to the residents of the Star & Garter," Sergeant Tony Marshall said. "They were a great audience and asked questions at every opportunity.

"I was shocked to see Muriel's reaction and I would like to thanks the Star & Garter for having me, it was a great opportunity and something I will remember for the rest of my life."
