190-lb Therapy Dog Picks Out His Own Tie and Sees Patients With His Human Mom! Aired April 02, 2018

Meet the ginormous therapy dog who's brought smiles to hospital patients for almost eight years!

He's a gentle giant who charms patients and nurses alike -- and he even dresses up for his visits with a necktie and stethoscope!

(Awww!)

When he was just a puppy, Quincy's owner, Karen, knew there was something special about him and that he had a calming effect on people. In fact, he was certified as a therapy dog two days after his first birthday!

"He is a natural," Karen says. "He was born to do this."

"His goal each night is to make someone’s day better," she continues, "even if it's just one person for a few minutes, he's done his job."

(Are you crying? Because we're crying.)

For each visit, Quincy dresses in one of his three dozen ties, as well as a stethoscope and his official doctor’s badge. He stops in to see patients that the nurses think might need a special pick-me-up, but sometimes he’ll wander into a room on his own if he senses another patient might want to say hello.

Rach got to meet Dr. Quincy in her studio -- and she loved hearing that he uses his days off to lounge on the counch.

"That’s my kind of fella!"

Ours too, Rach, ours too!
