Trace’s Daughter to Use $500 Reward to Help a Hurt Dog

Money would go to buy a device for a neighborhood dog that can’t use its back legs.

Trace Adkins is none too happy that his 10-year-old daughter, Brianna, ran back to get Australian shepherds Daisy and Bella when the family house went up in flames earlier this year.

“It wasn’t a very smart thing to do. But nobody could catch her,” Trace says. “As soon as she realized those dogs were back there, she took off running.”

But he is pleased that Brianna got a $500 check from a private group that rewards heroic behavior.

“I am proud of her passion,” Trace tells CountryWeekly.com.

Brianna is going to donate the money to help a dog who has “broken-down hindquarters,” Trace says.

“She wants to get him one of those doggy walker things. He doesn’t get to go walking with the family’s other dog. She feels bad about it. That’s the kind of kid she is.”
