453 dogs from every state in America were nominated for the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™. Our own San Diego Surf Dog Ricochet was one of those dogs. She’s now one of the 8 finalists advancing to the next round of voting, competing for the title of 2011 American Hero Dog!
Surf Dog Ricochet is more than amazing in that this wonderful dog has raised over $100,000 for charities in the last couple of years. Now that’s lending a paw for sure.
Check out some of the causes she has supported here: Surf Dog Ricochet.
Even more amazing, Ricochet’s owner recently had open heart surgery and instead of focusing on her woes she has spent her recovery time reaching out through Ricochet to others who are physically in need. It’s an amazing story and one San Diego should be proud of.
