TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A local service dog is up for some major recognition.
Meet Floyd Boesch and Precious the Dog.
They stopped by WTHI's studios on Wednesday.
Boesch is currently a student at Indiana State University.
Precious is a mobility service dog.
That means she can help her owner get around.
She was nominated for the "Hero Dog Award."
It's a nationwide award for service dogs and other K-9s.
Boesch says Precious is his hero.
"I tell ya what, a service dog is part of you without service dogs, I think there'd be a lot of people in trouble," Boesch said.
He said there are 265 competitors for the Hero Dog Award.
