Chopper the Biker Dog is quite the viral hit! He's famous for dressing up in biker gear and hitting the open road on his miniature motorcycle.

But it's not just his adorable hobby that makes Chopper special. He's actually a therapy dog that travels around the country to various hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation facilities to visit those who could use a little pick-me-up.

Chopper always arrives in style on his mini Harley Davidson bike dressed in a Harley leather vest, bandana, and motor goggles. The best part is when he rides in on his motorcycle, all the way into the patient's room.

Mark Shaffer, Chopper's owner, came up with his name while out at a restaurant, smoking a cigar, and drinking a margarita when the name just popped up in his head.

Before owning Chopper, Mark had another therapy dog, named Bandit. Sadly though, Bandit passed away and Chopper has since continued on the legacy of bringing joy to patients.
