Buddy, a seasoned 14-year old Jack Russell terrier who has been surfing off the coast of Ventura County, Calif., for the last decade with his owner Brucer Hooker, will be inducted into Surf Dog Hall of Fame on September 11th.
The athletic pooch has garnered numerous tournament wins, including the first four Surf Dog Surf-A-Thons. He became the “Fido face of dog surfing” after appearances on Animal Planet, Pet Star, ESPN, CNN, NBC and the CBS Morning Show.
The Surf Dog Hall of Fame is slated as part of the Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, the world’s largest dog surfing event. This event raises funds for the center’s orphaned animals.
Congratulations, Buddy! Keep on shredding those waves!
