If other professional football teams want to know the secret behind the San Francisco 49ers amazing start this season (eight consecutive wins and no losses at the time of this writing), they might want to consider Zöe’s role. Zöe is the National Football League’s first emotional support dog, and she is an asset to the team.
Zöe helps both players and staff, lessening stress and anxiety and bringing happiness to a group of people who are frequently in physical pain as well as dealing with emotional issues. Yes, the players and many of the coaches have their dream jobs and love what they do, but that does not mean that they have an easy life. Working for the NFL means being in a pressure cooker, and constantly dealing with that stress takes its toll.
