"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.
