Service Dog Plays Catch With Patient at Philadelphia Rehab Center

A service dog at a Philadelphia physical rehabilitation center made a patient’s session a little bit more fun with a game of fetch.

Footage shared by Magee Rehabilitation on January 20 shows patient Jaden Leiby, who is recovering from a spinal cord injury, playing catch with facility dog Nigel as part of his physical therapy.

According to local media, Leiby suffered a broken neck while making a tackle during a football game in October. Credit: Magee Rehabilitation – Jefferson Health via Storyful
