American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards - 2014 Finalists
Category: Service Dogs
Location: Apex, NC
Charity Partner: Eyes Ears Nose & Paws
Once a shelter dog, this small hero was rescued, trained, and partnered with a young girl suffering from a rare condition known as Mastocytosis, which can cause severe reactions for her. This dog with the gifted nose can detect when reactions are about to occur, alerting the girl’s parents that her life might be in danger. When she needed surgery recently, doctors requested the dog be present in the operating room to help keep the girl alive.
