Jojo the corgi was injured in a dog attack that left his owner with hand injuries and Jojo scrambling for his life. Jojo now uses surfing as part of his hydrotherapy.


In 2014, Jojo and his owner clashed with two dogs, following which Jojo's owner Josephine endured damage to her hand. But Jojo's injuries were much more serious. He was rushed to the emergency vet for an immediate operation.

Afterwards, Unilad reports that Jojo went through "tons of rehab" which included hydrotherapy. Upon his return from service, Josephine's husband took the now 8-year-old corgi to the beach as part of that therapy.

At one point, he rested Jojo on a surfboard, for convenience. Jojo's balance on the board was impressive. His stint took off from there and has continued ever since.

Jojo can boast of a third-place award at the Huntington surf dog competition back in 2016, and a first-place award at the Purina challenge dog competition.

Josephine says of she and the dog that "we love being in the water, we get to bond and it's just fun being able to spend time together."


And it's fun for the many fans of Jojo who get to watch his on Instagram where he has over 75,000 followers.

The adorable dog uses a GoPro camera to capture himself in action as he rides the waves wearing his life-vest and goggles.

Jojo has probably been on more beaches than most, including southern California waters and in Oahu, Hawaii's swells.

Jojo, who is also a therapy dog, also spends his time as a humanitarian who has volunteered at Scripps Memorial Hospital, as well as for military work, in rehabs, and at elderly homes.

He also works at the local library where little kids read books to her.

Earlier in August, a German labrador helped save the life of his owner Krystal when she fell to the floor unable to move. John Boy got the attention of a police officer by barking to him.

He then led the officer to his owner's home and they had Krystal taken to the hospital. She had a heart condition that led to the incident.
