Betty White Hero Dog AwardsMost likely your hero dog is the one snuggled up next to you. However, the eight finalists of the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards, presented by Cesar® Canine Cuisine, have gone above and beyond the call of duty and now need your vote to determine the winner.

Every day dogs of all shapes and sizes transform people’s lives with their compassion and comfort. Dogs truly are our best friends, and this competition recognizes their endless friendship and heroic feats.

Here is a little about each of the eight finalists.

  • Sadie, the certified accelerant detection K-9 who works with the Major Crimes Unit of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation
  • Zurich, the certified service dog who has enriched the life of his ailing partner
  • Stacey Mae, the therapy dog who has helped collect thousands of teddy bears from around the world for sick children in hospitals
  • Military Working Dog Bino, who has served as a Narcotics Detection/Patrol K-9 for almost 11 years
  • Roselle, the guide dog who worked at the World Trade Center and calmly directed her handler down 1,463 stairs on Sept. 11, 2001
  • K-9 Sage, the search and rescue dog who provided closure to many families of missing individuals
  • Harley, the hearing dog who has given his owner self-confidence and a feeling of equality with others that she had never before experienced
  • Ricochet, the dog who surfs with special-needs kids and people with disabilities for therapeutic purposes

The winner will be decided by your vote, along with celebrity judges including Victoria Stilwell, Betty White, Whoopi Goldberg, Kristin Chenoweth, Jillian Michaels and animal care experts such as Wendy Diamond.
