Canine Hero

Canine Hero

For each PuppyUp Walk, the Event Manager and their Walk Team select both a Human Cancer Hero and a Canine Cancer Hero, to be honored during the Walk ceremonies.

These Heroes are chosen because of their exemplary attitude towards their particular type of cancer, showing bravery and hopefulness in their fight against this terrible disease.

If you would like to nominate a dog for this honor at the 2019 Fredericksbug PuppyUp Walk, please contact the organizer at



It is with great sadness that we announce the recent passing of our 2017 Canine Hero, Shelby Davidson.

She will be missed by her family and all those who knew her.
