Littleton, Colorado (KMGH) — Rocky is a certified therapy animal that visits the Assisted Living Center in Colorado.
His owners Steve and Julie Donizio decided to get Rocky after Steve spent his time in the hospital. He said he saw the effects of animals on patients.
“I saw all the therapy dogs, and they made you a little happy when you were there. I said,’I’m going to get a therapy pony,'” Steve recalled. ..
Everyone seems to fall in love when they meet Rocky, but seniors seem to be most grateful.
“It brings back the good old memories of childhood when we had animals and horses,” Julie said. “They love to see them because their love for horses never dies.”
Rocky’s work goes beyond the Assisted Living Center. He also visits school children.
“I’m lucky he’s a very good boy. You may not know, he’s a good boy,” Steve said.
