Meet the dog that is helping frontline hospital workers to battle coronavirus pandemic

His name is Wynn, he is on the frontline of Denver’s fight against the Covid-19, who offers comfort and cuddles to the doctors.


How exactly is he helping the medics?  - he visits the emergency room at Rose Medical Center and is trained to become an assistance dog to adults, children and veterans with disabilities for the non-profit organization Canine Companions for Independence.


But really, how is he making an impact? – he is showing love to emergency room doctors, who are taking a break from their shift. He is sitting next to them while also listening to meditating music.

Before doctors can cuddle Wynn, they are required to wash their hands in order to prevent the possible spread of germs.



The dog owner, Ryan, believes that dogs can have a positive impact on doctors and nurses during this difficult time. 'Seeing stuff and hearing stuff that you can't unsee has an impact on you,' she said. 


'That's where the dogs come in. When you are in the presence of the dog and petting them you are taking a moment to ground yourself at that present time.' 


Wynn will be under the Ryan’s care until she is 22 months old, and then she'll move on to a professional training program at one of the organization's training centers.



More than 520,427 coronavirus cases have been confirmed until today, with over 23,595 deaths. In the United States, there are 81,714 confirmed cases with over 1,143 deaths.

coronavirus-in-russia-you-can-rent-a-dog-for-one-hour-in-order-to-avoid-the-quarantine

In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, residents from Moscow and several other regions are urged to stay at home. Under quarantine conditions, it is recommended to go outside only in case of emergency.


One good reason to leave your home for a short while is to walk your pets. First of all, dogs.


For those who do not have them, but really want to leave the house and take a walk, dog owners offer to rent a “friend for an hour”. Such ads have already appeared on well-known classified sites.


Price - from 500 rubles ($7) and above and a mandatory deposit, and some also have people "accompanying" the animal.


However, people who really love their dogs, this service causes at least confusion.


For example, corgi breeder Alexandra Baklamina, in a comment to Vesti.Ru, said that a normal owner of a dog would not give it to a stranger, even for a while.


"How can a person be sure of the behavior of his own dog? A dog may not listen to a stranger, pick up something or run away," Alexandra argues.


In addition, as other dog owners say, their pets, in principle, would not go for a walk with a stranger.


The veterinarian, professor of the Department of Biology and Virology, Doctor of Biological Sciences Elena Yarygina, for her part, noted in a comment to m24.ru that renting an animal is very cruel in relation to it.


Yarygina said that this will lead to stress and may affect his health.


The only situation where you can be trusted to walk with your pet acquaintances, friends or neighbors is when you cannot do this for health reasons.


However, the veterinarian believes that such announcements do not make much sense, since walking animals is not the only condition under which a person can leave his home during quarantine: there is still the opportunity to go to the nearest store or pharmacy.


Earlier it was reported about the Spaniard, who decided to earn extra money during strict quarantine, renting out his dogs for walking.


The Nature Protection Service and the Civil Guard drew attention to him. The man was asked to stop this activity, but he continued it.
