By Sunrise Senior Living  |  March 19, 2015

Mr. Fry, the beloved community pet at Sunrise at River Road, AZ, is nominated for the 2015 Hero Dog Award, a contest held by the American Humane Association. Mr. Fry’s story is incredible! On a chilly night, the once homeless hound entered Fry’s market, located near Phoenix. He amazingly learned how to open the automatic doors so that he could enter the store to seek warmth and shelter from the cold. Store employees called Arizona Greyhound Rescue.

Shortly after, it was established that this mystery dog is a Greyhound and Saluki mix, with a charming personality, and he was thereby named Mr. Fry.
