(KARE) An Albertville, Minnesota dog is using his golf talents to raise money for other needy animals.

Davos the dog has been finding and retrieving missing golf balls for about five years now. He’s been helping out his owner Al Cooper when he hits balls into the weeds at Cedar Creek Golf Course.

“I’m a lousy golfer, but he’s a good retriever,” said Al of the six-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog.
