Davos is a six-year-old Bernese Mountain dog from Minnesota, and like many other canines, he's curious and loves playing fetch.

His human, Al Cooper, tends to take advantage of Davos' tracking instincts on the golf course. He told KARE 11:

I'm a lousy golfer, but he's a good retriever.

Whenever Cooper hits a ball into the brush, his faithful dog springs into action to retrieve it. During his recovery missions, he also found plenty of other golf balls that others have lost.

This reaction sparked an idea for Cooper. He decided to sell back the balls that the canine found for 25 cents each, with all the proceeds going towards helping needy animalsAnimal Humane Society in Golden Valley.

New Record!!! Collected $30 in golf ball sales today! Must be because of the news article. Maybe another donation coming soon.Oh, yes, I noticed a dime and penny doesn't equal 25 cents...oh, well.Posted by Al Cooper on Thursday, May 25, 2017
