Hero had an inspiring story of survival, triumph and overcoming the impossible. He was raised in Korea in very difficult conditions, and was about to be sold to the meat farm when he was rescued by Retriever Rescue of Las Vegas. When Maureen and Josh first adopted him, Hero couldn’t run or jump as his legs were so atrophied. He didn’t know how to walk on a leash and wasn’t potty trained, even though he was an adult dog. Well, it didn’t take him long to learn how to Dog with the best of them! Within a few months, Hero was leash trained, was jumping up on the couch, was running in the field with Baxter and Lulu, and became the cuddliest boi any of us at Red Mountain had ever seen. He was an inspiration to us all and a shining example of how great life can be, no matter what may be in your past. We will miss him forever.
