Dr Koopa the Therapy Dog.

Move over Dr McDreamy, there's a new doctor in town, and he's a heartthrob!

Meet Koopa - he's a dog helping stroke patients to learn to walk and talk freely again in Auckland's North Shore hospital. Right up there with laughter, Koopa is one of  the best medicines around, giving patients motivation and support to make progress on recovery. 

St. John is looking for more volunteers, and dogs, to visit hospitals and rest homes. If you have a dog that fits the bill, click here.
