"Krueger the Wonder Dog" Named Official Mascot for Cancer Survivors Cruise
Cincinnati--Krueger, Indiana’s first level-two FEMA certified search
and rescue dog was recently declared cancer-free at the University of
Cincinnati College of Medicine. As a cancer survivor himself, Krueger
is also the official mascot for the 1998 Cancer Survivors Day riverboat
cruise in Cincinnati on June 7.
Krueger’s treatment at UC captured national media attention when it
appeared in the November issue of Dog Fancy magazine in an article
entitled "Rottweiler conquers cancer--Aiding an angel in distress."
Krueger and his owners, Gary and Shelly Hayes, will travel from South
Bend, Indiana to Cincinnati, Ohio to join 800 others in the Festival of
Life as part of the National Cancer Survivors Day celebration.
