He has done an outstanding job and has been
nominated to win this award.
Voting is now open for Hero Dog of the Year on herodogawards.org. The Website has detailed biographies of each dog. A person can vote once a day through Oct. 5. The final decision will be based 49 percent on the vote of the public and 51 percent on the opinion of the star-studded panel of judges.
Shuck, now a Senior Drill Sergeant Leader at Fort Jackson’s Drill Sergeant School, said the campaign also is a way to promote adopting shelter dogs.
