2018 "Hero Dog" Awards: Here Are America's Most Courageous Dogs

The Hero Dog Awards were created to celebrate the powerful relationship between dogs and people and recognize extraordinary acts of heroism performed by ordinary dogs. The sold-out, star-studded awards honoring America's most courageous canines were hosted at the Beverly Hilton Hotel few days ago and following more than a million votes by the American public and the opinions of an expert panel of celebrity animal lovers and dog experts, "Chi Chi," a four-year-old Golden Retriever from Phoenix, Arizona has been named this year's most heroic dog, besting 265 other brave canines and capturing the top title of "American Hero Dog".   

Chi Chi was the one chosen as 2018 American Hero Dog, but all seven finalists were winners in their categories, and we salute them for their courage, service and compassion. Here are their official nominations, as told by their handlers and owners.
