This is what I found on PEOPLE.COM:

[Tonka] [t]he great Dane, a certified therapy dog with The Dog Alliance in Cedar Park, Texas, has a big teddy bear personality to match his large frame.

According to KXAN, this caring canine is doing his part to help those affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Before the spread of COVID-19, Tonka would visit senior centers in the Cedar Park area to spread joy to residents. Now, with senior centers across the country temporarily prohibiting outside visitors in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to their residents, Tonka has gotten creative with how he cheers up senior citizens.

The dog and his owner/handler Courtney Leigh are doing a sort of curbside pick-me-up for the residents of Cedar Pointe Health and Wellness Suites. Recently, Tonka has been pawing up to the outside windows of the senior center and saying hello to residents through the glass.
