WAVERLY (KWWL) -

A Waverly native and his dog are in Los Angeles, California this weekend for the National Hero Dog Awards.

Matt Hatala and his dog, Chaney, left for L.A. on Thursday. Chaney is one of eight dog finalists nominated for the 2014 American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards.

The 8-year-old lab retired from the Marines in 2012 after multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The winning dog won't be announced on Saturday's award ceremony. The award ceremony will air on the Hallmark Channel on October 30 at 7 p.m. CST.

Here's the biographies of the finalists: http://www.americanhumane.org/about-us/newsroom/news-releases/meet-americas-top-dogs-2014.html
