Seffner service dog in the running for “Hero Dog Awards”

It’s known as the “Oscars for Canines.” The American Humane Hero Dog Awards is a national competition recognizing ordinary dogs that do extraordinary things. 

Some have saved lives on the battlefield or have lent sight or hearing to a human companion. Others work in law enforcement or as first responders.

Among the dogs being considered this year is 5-year-old Justice, a companion from the Pups4Patriots program for Seffner’s Mike Bundrick, who is retired from the Army and law enforcement.
