A Therapy Rottweiler Is Distributing Gifts Or Hero Healing Kits To Medical Staff

Rottweilers have quite a bad name about themselves. They are considered violent and aggressive. However, did you know about the Therapy Rottweiler? You might be aware of how the pandemic is working up doctors all around the world. However, even dogs are trying to help out. This therapy Rottweiler is trying all he can to help the front-line doctors by delivering healing kits to the Maryland hospital. The therapy dog works at the University of Maryland Medical Center and has an alias – Dogtor Loki.

This Therapy Rottweiler is 2 years old and is a therapy dog present in the hospital in Baltimore. Caroline Benzel is the amazing mother of Loki. She is a second-year student of medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. She mentioned that she got Loki at the same time when she got into medical school.

When her grandfather got sick, she knew she wanted to get a therapy dog. When her grandfather was sick, she stayed near his bed for about a month. Then, she thought about how her grandfather would light up when he saw a dog. 

Before the pandemic, Loki and Caroline would spend 3 days a week in the hospital.

Caroline was taken out of the school when the pandemic started and she was brought into the frontlines. She was pulled out of the frontlines too. Now, she is using Facetime to communicate with the nurses and patients. 

Due to the face masks, people were getting a skin irritation. 24/7 PPE is not something that the human skin is accustomed to. 

When the doctors were facing so many problems, Caroline tried to find a way to help them. She wanted to transport care packages for them. That’s why they started making these care packages – “hero healing kits.”

For these kits, they began collecting common items like Gold Bond, chapstick, tea, hand lotion, etc. She also asked for donations from other people using an Amazon Wishlist since Amazon has imposed a limit on how many items a person can buy.

Due to the kindness of the people, Caroline was able to collect about 1400 kits. And so, her Therapy Rottweiler was put to work.

You can still help Caroline based on her Amazon Wishlist. You can follow her and her Therapy Rottweiler’s amazing journey on Facebook and Instagram.
