‘America’s Got Talent’ 2017 Finalist, Loki the Dog, in Critical Condition
Sad news broke yesterday as Sara Carson announced worsening health issues with one of her dogs from last season’s AGT finalist act, Sara & Hero. Loki was one of the dogs that took part in a few of Sara & Hero’s performances. He was a puppy at the time he was on the show.
Sara posted the following photo and caption to Instagram:
The picture shows Loki receiving laser therapy. While the vets aren’t sure what’s wrong with him, they are working hard to figure it out and treat him. It seems he has been having health issues for a while now, but they recently took a turn for the worse. Earlier this month, Sara posted, “There is nothing scarier than to have one of your dogs get an unknown illness.” We can’t even imagine how difficult this must be.
Loki was part of one of Simon Cowell’s personal favorite dog acts ever, Sara & Hero! And it is honestly impressive to see how well-trained these dogs are. Cute dogs doing flips off their trainer, jumping through her arms…what’s not to love? But the bond between Sara and her dogs has to be very close to pull this off. That makes this news even more tragic.
Sara & Hero’s act brought them all the way to the America’s Got Talent finals, where they impressed the judges and won over the hearts of America. To refresh your memory, here is Loki’s first appearance on AGT:
There has been an outpouring of love since the post yesterday. Last season’s winner, Darci Lynne Farmer, commented:
“Aw so sorry Sara! I’ll be praying for you and Loki”
And Mandy Harvey, fourth place finisher from last season, also commented:
“I’m so sorry sweetheart! I wish there was something I could do”
We all have Loki in our thoughts and prayers as he continues to find treatment. We’re hoping for a quick diagnosis and a full recovery!
