Norbert Therapy Dog square.jpg

My Mom, Julie Freyermuth, and I are a registered therapy animal team with the Pet Partners® organization. I am also a Canine Good Citizen and a certified R.E.A.D.® dog with the Intermountain Therapy Animals organization.

As a therapy dog, I have volunteered at nursing homes, hospitals, special events and schools. I currently volunteer at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. My mission as a therapy dog is simple: to spread smiles, inspire kindness and bring comfort to those in need.

As an extension of my therapy work, I love to donate copies of my picture books as a way to inspire others and teach children you don't have to be big to make a BIG difference in the world.

Charities and organizations I support are:

- Children's Hospital Los Angeles
- Pet Partners®
- Lil BUB's BIG FUND for the ASPCA
- The Boot Campaign
- Children's Melanoma Prevention Foundation

I am proud to be the national mascot for the Children's Melanoma Prevention Foundation's SunAWARE Program. As the mascot, I hope to connect with children and teach them about sun safety in a way that is engaging and fun! 

The mission of the SunAWARE Children's Program is designed to teach children and their caretakers about skin cancer prevention and sun protection.
