Teacup Poodle Dog Rides Elevators Every Day to Visit a Nursing Home

No one can say with certainty if dogs go to heaven, but the residents of one nursing home will tell you that heaven sent them a dog.

Though she wasn’t trained as a therapy animal, Nala the Teacup Poodle is working wonders for the elderly residents at the Minnesota-based Lyngblomsten nursing home. Nala scurries from room to room to spend some quality time with her friends. She even rides the elevator all by herself!

This all started when the tiny, black fluff ball came to work one day with her owner, Doug Dawson, and the residents absolutely fell in love with her. Now, Nala comes to work with Doug every day, and while her owner’s job is to dispense medicine, Nala prescribes affection.
