Nursing home residents are certain this tiny dog is from heaven. After seeing her in action, I agree!
She's had absolutely no "therapy dog" training, but she's nailing it anyway!
Enjoy this absolutely delightful short clip from USA Today about an adorable therapy dog named Nala.
I realllly recommend watching.
But if you can't, don't worry. Here's the heart-melting goodness:
This is Nala. She's an adorable little teacup poodle who loves working as a therapy dog at a nursing home.
She makes the rounds each day, bringing joy to the elderly residents.
Nala makes her own schedule! She chooses who to see and when to see them.
"Let her go! She knows where she's going!" her owner says. The cool part is that she really does.
The residents of the nursing home adore her.
She brings a lot of joy and happiness to a lot of people. And she's not alone.
Therapy dogs are incredibly valuable to people's happiness.
Animal-assisted therapy can significantly reduce pain, anxiety, depression, and fatigue in people with a range of health problems...
And it's not only the ill person who reaps the benefits. Family members and friends who sit in on animal visits say they feel better too. — Mayo Clinic
'Cause sometimes unconditional love and a wagging tail are the best medicine.
