The San Francisco 49ers are the first team in the NFL to have an emotional support animal join their team. Her name is Zoë and she’s an adorable French Bulldog.
She’s a great stress reliever for the players, who spend time with her in between practices or before games. Back in October 2018, the director of player engagement for the 49ers, Austin Moss, adopted Zoë and she’s been part of the family ever since. In an interview with KRON, Moss said, “These guys are very strong powerful men that aren’t used to be able to express their emotions freely. But when you come in here in a safe space, and you know that it’s just about being yourself and having a good time and getting some help that you may need — Zoë brings a lot of value to that.”
Zoë even has her very own Instagram account, where you can follow her adventures and catch her posing with her teammates.
