The curly-haired dogs barrel-rolled and back-flipped Wednesday afternoon at the Dubuque Regional Humane Society, eliciting cheers from children attending the organization’s summer camps.
Richard Olate and his son Nicholas brought seven of their award-winning acrobatic dogs to the animal shelter to meet with campers who share their passion for rescue animals.
The Olates and their canine stars won the seventh season of the hit television show “America’s Got Talent” in 2012. The dogs’ circus-style routines began on the streets of Chile.
“My dad grew up very poor,” Nicholas explained.
Richard was a third-generation circus performer who first stepped onto the stage at age 12.
He and the street dogs “rescued each other,” Nicholas said. More than half of the family’s performing dogs were rescued, either from the streets, bad homes or animal shelters.
“It’s neat they do rescue tours,” said Lisa Kucharski, the humane society’s community outreach coordinator. “It allows people to see what a rescue dog can do. You don’t need a purebred for a dog to be well-trained.”
