ACE stands for Awards for Canine Excellence. Every year, these exceptional dogs are honored at the AKC National Championship for their service to humankind. This year’s honorees are:

Search & Rescue: Bodie, a Belgian Malinois from San Diego, who goes on approximately 20 rescues each year.

Service: Teddie, a Labrador Retriever who assists Krystal, a young woman who was paralyzed when a disc ruptured in her back.

Companion: Haus, a German Shepherd from Tampa, Florida, who took three snake bites to protect one of his young family members.

Therapy: Jackie, a Sussex Spaniel from Woodstock, California. Jackie works with the Wag Brigade at the San Francisco airport, making people feel more calm before flying, particularly when flights are delayed.

Uniformed Service K-9: Radar, a bloodhound from Elbert County, Colorado. He is trained in finding missing persons and tracking down criminals and evidence.

Congratulations to these outstanding dogs and their friends.
