Remembering Red Haas, city's Ambassadog


The Pleasanton community is mourning the loss of the city's Ambassadog, Red Haas, who died unexpectedly earlier this month just shy of his 13th birthday after a brief battle with aggressive cancer.

The golden retriever-chow mix took the ceremonial leash in May to serve the year as the city's official canine representative, a designation that aims to highlight the dog-friendly policies and practices in Pleasanton.

Red earned the title after the Haas family won the 2018 Ambassadog auction at Valley Humane Society's Tails at Twilight fundraising gala.

Thank You to the Pleasanton Weekly for honoring Red. He was a wonderful dog and a friend to everyone. He will be greatly missed. Happy to have this memory and great pictures during his Amassadog reign.
