Comfort dog brings cheer to Penn Medicine patients

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Meet Tugger, a 9 year old therapy dog who's spreading smiles to local hospital patients.

He is dressed up as a snowman for the holidays, and he is equipped with his own GoPro camera to document his ventures at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Tugger walks around providing comfort to patients and stress relief for the staff.

He also enjoys the occasional snack break, and he's really good at sitting on chairs.

Tugger is considered to be one of the friendliest and furriest members of the Penn Medicine care team.
