If you needed something to put a smile on your face today, look no further. Meet Jojo the surfing corgi.

I know what you’re thinking: ‘I can barely sit on a surfboard without falling off so how can a dog ride the waves with ease?’ Well, Jojo may have a bit of an extra advantage as he has four legs to keep him stable, but the clever pooch has also had plenty of practice to perfect his skills.

But Jojo didn’t pick up surfing just for fun, he actually developed his talent as a form of therapy.

Three years ago, eight-year-old Jojo and his owner, Josephine Zosa, were out walking when they were viciously attacked. Two dogs attacked the pair and Jojo barely made it out alive. Josephine’s hand was attacked, but Jojo suffered severe injuries.

Jojo was rushed to the emergency vet and underwent lots of rehab to regain his strength again. Which involved hydrotherapy…

When my husband came home from deployment, he took Jojo out to the beach and did therapy there. [For] Jojo surfing is therapy and it had helped him to be healthy again. He got his strength and mobility back.

Poor Jojo was traumatized after the horrific attack that nearly cost him his life. But thankfully he has found peace out in the water. He has even got so good at surfing, thanks to his hydrotherapy, that he competes in contests. He recently won at the Purina challenge dog competition and came in third place at Huntington surf dog competition in 2016.

As if being a pro-surfer wasn’t enough for Jojo, he is also a therapy dog. He was clearly inspired by his own troubled past and wanted to help other people going through a hard time.

He volunteers for the military, Scripps Memorial hospital, rehabs and elderly homes. He also goes to the city library where the kids read books to him.

Jojo is the perfect definition of a ‘good boy’.

Jojo the surfing corgi‘s reign doesn’t end there though. He is due to compete at Del Mar dog beach in September at another surfing competition. We have no doubt in our minds that he will smash it!

Watch the video below to see adorable Jojo the surfing corgi in action.

    Jojo is a true inspiration. I have a Corgi too, we just hang here on an island in the Pacific Northwest.
    Smile to start the day!
    I wrote a little Corgi book that sells on etsy. [Search HiljeKnits]
    Would love to gift one to Jojo if you send me a mailing address.
    Thanks, Marie

    We had a Corgi back in the 60’s. His name was George. We took him with us while stationed in Mississippi and Florida. He was such a good dog. Then my hubby had to go over seas so I went back home to wait and had my good friend George, to help me through that. We were then stationed in California and George had to stay home. He died while we were away. old age. Loved that dog. He was a beach dog in Florida too.
