All-American Dog Contest
August 6, 2020
A local therapy dog, Annie Rose, was chosen as a winner of the national All-American Dog competition. The contest was held by Early Times, an All-American Whiskey.
A three-year-old English Goldendoodle, Annie Rose is a certified therapy dog and works with people who have terminal illnesses. She was one of ten winners chosen from tens-of-thousands of entries as part of the Early Times All-American Dogs social media campaign.
“Annie Rose has a high sensitivity level,” said Lori Rahn, Annie Rose’s owner. “Ever since she was four months old, she has been able to pick up on people with terminal illnesses, like a sixth sense. She runs up to them and lays her head in their lap and comforts them. We are so excited that her special talents are being recognized.”
Annie Rose’s picture was featured on a billboard in Cincinnati on I-75 near Dayton Street. She will also be featured in the Early Times 2021 All-American Dogs calendar, to be released in the fall.
The other ten winners hail from Kentucky, Indiana, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, Tennessee, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, and Nevada.
