World's Largest Service Dog Visits Grand Island

By  | 

He's not small by any means, but this Great Dane specializes in dealing with children. Bentley, the world's largest service dog, is a certified therapy dog who got his start visiting one cancer patient at Omaha's Children's Hospital.

Tuesday, Bentley and his owner Patrick travel to hospitals around the country to share the fun of 'one of the world's largest dogs' with sick children.

The 5-year-old pup stopped in the Central Nebraska Humane Society Tuesday for a quick visit.

Bentley's owner, Patrick Malcom said, "A dog food company heard about it, and they said they would pay to have Bentley go around and donate money for Cure Search for kids cancer research and for canine cancer research. Now, Bentley has a job where he tours the country and gives money to canine and kids cancer research foundations."

Bentley's owner says the best way to tell Bentley's story to kids is through pictures, so he has a children's book coming out soon.
