The awards show flips between honoring the dogs and the humans who work in the field. As each dog’s story is presented, their human companion provides the animal’s backstory in a video. Each story starts with a situation that’s sad and seemingly hopeless, but in the end turns into something greater than the human companions could have imagined.

One inspiring story was about a dog named Jeanie, who is a therapy dog. Jeanie was a rescue dog that had to have one of her legs removed. She was adopted by her owner who quickly noticed that her dog was special. The dog always knew how to deal with different moods and how to make others feel better. Jeanie was then tested and became a registered therapy dog.

Jeanie’s owner started to take her to veteran’s homes and transitions classes, so she was able to help others. Jeanie was so able to connect with others because she also had a flaw these people could see that helped them. Jeanie was also used by her owner as a therapy dog when she went through a tough medical procedure.

At the end of the show, they gave out the biggest award of the night, the Hero Dog Award. This award combined all the dogs that were honored with their individual awards to see what dog was the Hero of the Year.
