It’s no surprise that this talented dog wins the Internet after showing his impressive surfing skills online. This talented pooch has a great connection with the ocean.
He’s now the world’s only surfing Corgi!
Jojo is an eight-year-old Corgi who lives and surfs in California. Surfing wouldn’t be on his bucket list until a heartbreaking reason following a serious attack from another dog where he nearly didn’t make it out alive.
His owner, Josephine Zosa, introduced Jojot to the unusual hobby as a means of ‘therapy’ after she and Jojo suffered a traumatic attack. The two were attacked by two dogs, leaving her with injuries on her hand, and Jojo with physical and mental scarring.
Jojo now uses surfing as a form of therapy and has been for about three years.
“I got attacked on my hand and Jojo almost didn’t make it alive. We had to rush him to the emergency vet and did tons of rehab after his operation we started with hydrotherapy. When my husband came home from deployment, he took Jojo out to the beach and did therapy there. Jojo surfing is therapy and it had helped him to be healthy again. He got his strength and mobility back.”
Josephine Talking about Jojo’s Surfing Success
“He won at the Purina challenge dog competition and was 3rd place in Huntington surf dog competition in 2016, he’s is also a therapy dog. He volunteers for the military, Scripps Memorial hospital, rehabs and elderly homes. We love being in the water we get to bond and it’s just fun being able to spend time together.”
According to Josephine, Jojo also goes to the city library where the kids read books to him. The video was made just for fun. They love being in the water they get to bond and it’s just fun being able to spend time together. He will be competing again on September 9, 2018, at the Del Mar dog beach in San Diego.
Seriously, what a talented pooch we have here! No doubt Jojo will nail the competition.
