Navasota is home now to a Hero Dog.
At Monday night’s City Council meeting, Navasota fire chief Jason Katkoski introduced a very good boy named Remington.
“He is a search dog, particularly in the area of a cadaver dog, helping solve cold cases and such. He has worked across the state, and across the US. Last year in June, he had to be medically retired,” said Katkoski.
Remington had to be retired after having a leg removed due to cancer. He has been helped by Project K9 Heroes, who assisted in the surgery and medical needs.
But for why we called him a hero dog, it is due to his winning of a prestigious award.
“He was nominated for the American Humane Hero Dog wards, and he was awarded in the area of search. Now, he is combined up, and they are still tallying totals for all dogs,” Katkoski said.
408 dogs were nominated for awards across seven categories, ranging from service dogs, to search dogs to guide dogs.
The winners of the categories will go on to a national event, which airs on the Hallmark Channel this Fall.
Congratulations to Remington, Navasota’s own very good boy.
