New service dog joins ranks at M-Health Fairview University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital

A new service dog will be helping kids at M-Health Fairview University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.

The M-Health Fairview University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital just got a new facility dog.

"Rocket Tuffy" just arrived last week from Georgia. He is two years old and has a big job -- helping kids.

Rocket's partner and handler Anna Dressel joined Tom Butler on the FOX 9 Morning Show.
