Newfoundland Therapy Dog

Newfoundlands are known for their gentle character and Koko very much lives up to that reputation. She is best friends with Murray the Burrowing Owl but also enjoys helping to nurture chicks during breeding season.

She helped to look after Jess the Barn Owl when she was a tiny chick and is very patient and tolerant with her young charges. As well as working with autistic children Koko works with young adults with mental health issues and has worked with the children of recovering addicts.

She is named after Koko the gorilla and we were very surprised to discover that some native American tribes call Burrowing Owls Koko because of their call so her friendship with Murray is very appropriate.

As Koko is a Canadian breed by adopting Koko you will also be contributing to a burrowing owl conservation project in Canada whose local burrowing ambassador is also called Koko.

Adopting Koko
