Just prior to filming A Genie’s Tail, Hero was featured on America’s Got Talent Championsas one of the top 50 acts in the world. He was also featured onThe Late Show with David Letterman and The Ellen Show. 


Hero’s owner and trainer, Canada’s Sara Carson, rescued Hero when he was just a puppy.  Her dream of being a dog trainer was not supported by her family and she found Hero at time where she needed some hope in her life. “His name is Hero because I needed a hero at the time, to be there for me because nobody really was. I just want to show those family members that I can be successful at this.” Now, the successful pair are traveling around the world captivating audiences of all ages.  

“Watching Sara and Hero behind the scenes while filming ‘A Genie’s Tail’ was inspiring.  The bond between the two is undeniable and the amount of behaviors that Hero is able to perform is beyond impressive.” Says producer David Jackson.  Some of these behaviors include walking on his hind legs, walking on his front legs, riding a skateboard, jumping rope, performing CPR, navigating obstacle courses, dancing, and doing incredible leaps.
