Entry Category Emerging Hero Dogs
Charity Partner Pine Street Foundation (Canine Cancer Detection)
Location James Island, South Carolina


Beau volunteered for about six years as a registered therapy dog, visiting hospitals, nursing homes, schools and such, until he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. As much as he loved his volunteer work, the cancer that had invaded his body demanded his attention and energy. Beau's new job was a fight for his life. We were initially told Beau had only a few months to live - that was almost two years ago. Beau has been through surgery, chemo after chemo, and everything in between; all of which he has handled with a prance in his walk and a smile on his face. Thanks to some very special veterinarians, both in Missouri and South Carolina, and to Beau himself, Beau is beating the odds. Beau continues to fight this horrid disease with the heart of a true champion - a true hero.
