Cutest Therapy Dog in the World?

– You all know I’m a dog lover and our next guest is
an Instagram celebrity, a regular at Children’s
Hospital of Los Angeles, and proof that no matter
how little you are, you can make a huge difference,
everyone meet Norbert. Who is seven inches tall, furry, and lowers blood pressure
while raising endorphins? Meet Norbert. This lovable mixed breed is a three pound registered therapy dog and
is quickly bringing smiles and giving out lovable high-fives. Norbert already has 900,000
social media followers, has become the star of his own international award-winning picture book. This handsome seven
year old is living proof that big changes can
come from small packages. (applause) Please give a warm welcome
to Julie and Norbert. – Thank you. – Welcome. (applause) The cutest thing about Norbert is how Norbert’s tongue sticks
out like that, how cute. (laughing) – Yeah, I tell kids he gave some of his teeth to the tooth fairy. – Oh, that is so sweet. So, I’m curious what kind of therapy work does Norbert do with kids? – So, his therapy work is vast. First and foremost, we’re volunteers at Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles and– – [Dr. Ordon] A great place, where I did part of my training and… – Amazing place. They actually have over a hundred dogs and handlers that volunteer there. To basically, visit patients
and provide comfort and joy. And, Norbert dishes out
high-fives and get’s belly rubs. It’s a pretty good gig for him. – Can I get a high-five? What do I do? – Yeah. Let me put him down on here, just put your hand right in front of him and say, “high-five.” – High-Five. Oh, Norbert, you’re so cute. You’re so cute. So, I love, you know, people out there, a lot of folks love dogs and
there’s a slight difference between a therapy dog and
an emotional support dog, and, as a true therapy dog, how would you ever
involve your dog in that? Cause I’m sure a lot of
people out there are thinking, oh, this would be a cool thing
for us to get involved in. – Before I got Norbert,
I’d never even heard of it and somebody saw him and saw how calm and gentle he was and good with people, and said he make a great therapy dog. So, I looked into it, and basically, he has to pass a series of evaluations and there’s also a test
for me, as his handler, that I have to pass as well. And, he’s registered
with an organization… – You’re such a little therapist, you. – Called Pet Partners, yes. So, he’s very good at his
job or volunteer work. – Well, and I think this is one
of those issues in medicine, we always talk about mind-body connection, and you take a kid and you think, okay, you can pump a kid
full of anti-anxiety drugs or, in some cases, all they need is to pet a lovable dog like Norbert. I really applaud you for
the work your doing and… (applause) I know Norbert has been up to something in particular recently, this time of year. – Yeah, Norbert’s a busy little guy, so he created a plush toy of himself, with the help of me and
my mother, actually. And, it’s really special. And, we’re really proud because we’re a national corporate
donor with Toys for Tots, so for every one that get’s purchased, we donate one to them, which
goes to a child in need. (applause) So, it’s really great. – And we were so inspired
by Norbert’s work here that we reached out to our
friends at Oska Wellness, who specialize in products
for pain management, they’re gonna donate a
$1000 to Toys for Tots, in honor of Norbert here. Norbert, you keep up the good work, buddy. – Can you do one more high-five? – One more high-five
before we go to break? – For a treat? Oh, good job. – Thank you buddy. So sweet. Thanks for sharing Norbert with us
– Thanks for having us. – [Dr. Stark] And all
the work that you two do. More to come.

    I just can’t

  5. I think that Norbert is too small and I think my dog is a lot cuter. I get that ppl have preferences in cuteness but I think my Pitt bull is a lot cuter

  6. LOL 37 people here are cat lovers…how can you dislike it? Omg…can't get over Norbert's tongue. Hope Norbert isn't a Noberta πŸ˜‰ any Harry Potter fans here?

  7. Young lady, you are doing such a wonderful thing.
    NORBIT is oneof the cutest puppies I've ever seen.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH
    FOR SHARING
    MAY GOD CONTINUE TO
    BLESS YOU ALL

  8. I put this video off for 4 months. What was I thinking? This dog is so cute. I wish I could pet Nobert (or a dog like him) in real life. 😣

    EDIT- 3:43 P.M.: Am I the only one that wonders about what dogs like him think about everyday?
    3:55 P.M.: I've read about Norbert from other comments. There are no other dogs like him. The circumstances that made him the dog that he is are too….unique?

  9. "That’s an awesome video!
