Gabe, a weapons sniffing dog at Fort Jackson who conducted 210 combat missions in Iraq, is now the American Humane Association’s Hero Dog of the Year.
The grand prize was $10,000 to support other service dogs and handlers now fighting in Afghanistan.
A secondary payoff was getting to meet Betty White during last month’s award ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Los Angeles. The ceremony will air at 8 p.m. on Nov. 8 on the Hallmark Channel.
