Rin Tin Tin Goes Back to Work

The iconic dog is the new spokesdog for the American Humane Association.

Posted: May 26, 2011, 3 a.m. EDT

Rin Tin Tin steps back in the spotlight for the American Humane Association's Hero Dog Awards. 
Rin Tin Tin’s first gig? National ambassador for the organization’s Hero Dog Awards.

It’s a fitting honor for a dog whose celebrated line goes back to World War I, when the first Rin Tin Tin was rescued as a puppy from a battlefield in 1918 France and brought back to the U.S. Rin Tin Tin went on to become one of the film world’s first canine star, while his offspring, Rin Tin Tin III, served as the model for the U.S. Military Working Dog’s training program at Camp Hahn in California.  

Today Rin Tin Tin will blaze a different kind of trail, this time as a representative for American Humane Association's Red Star Emergency Response unit, currently deployed to rescue animals in flood-ravaged Tennessee.

“We could not ask for a more fitting national ambassador for our programs,” says Robin Ganzert, Ph.D., American Humane Association president and chief executive officer.
