Wilshire The Fire Dog A Los Angeles Firehouse Mascot Needs Your Help #LAFD #CaFire #CaPets #Firedog

Vote for LAFD Fire Dog "Wilshire" to Fetch a Top Dog Title

Dear Friend of the LAFD, 
NBC's TODAY and "Chicago Fire" are honoring the top firehouse dog in the nation, and our LAFD Fire Dog "Wilshire" could use your vote. The winner will fetch a cameo appearance on an upcoming episode of "Chicago Fire."

Hundreds of firehouses nationwide submitted entries, and three finalists were selected by "Chicago Fire" producers. They stopped by TODAY's plaza Tuesday morning with their handlers and the show's stars Jesse Spencer and Taylor Kinney. (Watch a video of their appearance.

Wilshire, a rescue dog adopted by the L.A. firehouse after a family couldn't keep him, continually performs live fire and life safety demonstrations at schools across the city. Beyond showing proper stop, drop and roll techniques, he teaches kids about the importance of healthy eating and exercise by lifting a 100 lb. dumbbell and running on a treadmill.

While all three dogs: Dempsey, Smokey & Wilshire have truly motivating stories and are great sources of inspiration, our Wilshire needs a little help in the polls, as the image below indicates.

Now it's up to you. Read the short bios of each pooch, and vote in the poll who should be dubbed "Top Dog." Voting ends Sept. 30th

To vote, CLICK HERE, scroll down the webpage and click on the circle by Wilshire's name to cast your ballot. Let's give our local pup a fighting chance!

Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
