Koko the mixed breed Labradoodle is a special type of therapy dog.
Meet the adorable chocolate labradoodle, Koko. She was the first mixed breed to receive the American Kennel Club's working therapy dog title, ThD. Owner Steven Herz, inspired by his father's life of service, got Koko certified and has led therapy efforts in over 35 different facilities in five counties of New Jersey helping those in need.
"We are paid in God Bless you's, thank you's and you've made my day's," said Steven. "It's the best thing you could ever hear."
Creature Comfort Pet Therapy goes by the slogan "cold noses warming hearts" and believes animals have a power to help people in a way sometimes other humans cannot. In Koko's over seven years of service, she has helped countless children open up in the classroom, brought smiles to people in nursing homes and hospitals, and made hundreds of people's day!
