Naomi Judd presenting during American Humane Hero Dog Awards | The Music Universe

Event airs Monday, Oct 19th on Hallmark Channel

Six-time GRAMMY, nine-time CMA and seven-time ACM Award-winning entertainer, Naomi Judd, will appear during the The American Humane Hero Dog Awards on the Hallmark Channel Monday, October 19th at 8 pm ET. Judd will present an award to service dog Dolly Pawton and her handler.

“In the entertainment world, you have stars, and then you have the superstars. In the animal world, service dogs are the superstars. Every year, American Humane honors service dogs with the Hero Dog Awards, and I’m thrilled that I get to be a part of this inspiring fun show,” Judd shares.

The American Humane Hero Dog Awards is an annual, nationwide competition that recognizes the heroes on both ends of the leash. Seven courageous canines will be featured, and only one dog will be awarded the 2020 American Hero Dog title. Annually, the event is a formal gala at the Beverly Hilton, but this year the event is virtual due to COVID-19.
