Best in Rescue Winner: Howard the Dog
Prize: $25,000
Rescue Organization: San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

About Howard the Dog: Alex and fiancé, Walter, saw a listing for Howard at the San Gabriel Valley shelter after a month long search. They were astonished by his unique and adorable appearance, and dreamt of him that evening. The very next morning they arrived at the shelter, and after a few perfunctory sniffs of the play yard, a 9 month old Howard came right up and greeted them with his belly to the sky, hoping for rubs and attention. Howard had apparently been too rambunctious for his previous owners, but with a little love, training, and neutering, his temperament has proven to be just right for their household.
