John D is making his way around the internet! As he and ASDA president, Donna Waugh, prepare for their trip to Hollywood in October, news reporters are picking up the Hero Dog momentum. He was recently featured on the New Dog World website.
John D won the search and rescue category of the American Humane Association's 2013 Hero Dog contest. He's been deployed to several national disasters, including the Joplin tornadoes and the Nashville floods. He's also a participant in canine cancer detection studies at UAMS. He'll be competing with six other finalists for the Hero Dog Award, so remember to cast your vote (every day!) to support our hero.
We're so excited to tell you John D has been recognized for his boundless commitment to search and rescue! As you might recall, John D wrote a moving letter asking for your support as he entered the 2013 Hero Dog Award contest. We absolutely could not have done it without you and your votes, so thank you so much for helping JohnD, our team, and the Sage Foundation for Dogs Who Serve gain national visibility through the American Humane Society.
Voting for the overall Hero Dog of the Year begins on August 6th. We'll post the voting link soon!
John D will have Hollywood producers visit in August to showcase his talents. Stay tuned for upcoming news, images and video.
