MILTON, Ga. -- 11Alive's morning show mascot made his national debut Tuesday on the 'TODAY' show.

Pirelli is pretty deserving of all the attention.

The pup was born without a foot but with a calling at Canine Assistants, a Milton-based nonprofit that trains and provides service dogs for the disabled.

Pirelli has been helping us spread a message of tolerance and acceptance on our "Hope and Weather" tours at local schools.

That message reached "TODAY", which decided to share Pirelli's story with the whole country.
