As a therapy dog, Benji has spent the last five years visiting people who need cheering up at nursing homes, high schools and a local hospital. After nearly 1,000 visits, everyone knows his name.
“Everybody just loves this dog, especially at the hospital,” Teck told The Dodo. “I hear his name being called from the second I walk in the front door to the second I leave.”
“He’s known from the guards at the gate to the nurses on the seventh Floor,” Teck added. “Everybody knows him.”
