Travelers flying through New Jersey's Newark Liberty Airport are getting an unexpected pick-me-up. United Airlines' (UAL) - Get Report United Paws program is bringing therapy dogs to their passengers. Travelers are taking a moment out of their holiday rush to get to know them.

The largest dog by far is Puppy Chuck. He is a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, and he provides services beyond just comforting passengers at the airport. Puppy Chuck is also a Glucodog, who helps his owner and is able to help alert his owner to drops in blood glucose levels and before a medical crisis occurs.
