Don Suave Gilberto de Camarillo, nicknamed Suave, is a 7-year-old Cocker Spaniel who lives in Stockton. But this furry friend is pretty special. He’s been instrumental in helping people affected by the wildfires in Santa Rosa. He also helps children learn to read and has comforted patients in hospice. So, it’s no wonder he’s a nominee for the eighth annual American Humane Hero Dog Awards.

“He loves people. He enjoys getting out,” owner Gil Anema told Fox 40.

Suave has undergone Crisis Response training, which made him perfect to help victims of the recent wildfires. Because of his good boy deeds, the Cocker Spaniel is up against 265 other dogs for the award.

“If he doesn’t win, he just keeps on doing what he does,” Anema said. “I mean that’s what we’re here for.”

The American Humane Hero Dog Awards take place in September and will be aired on the Hallmark Channel. Additionally, you can vote for Suave, the Stockton native. Just go here!
