"Lucas was inspirational from the first time I ever saw him and I was impressed that after all he had gone through, he still loved humans. He showed us the resilience of canines, something we humans need to learn.

Bottom line, he was the king of kings. He changed people's perceptions worldwide about who fighting dogs were and what they could become.

I think it's time not be sad but to celebrate his life. He lived a happy life at Best Friends and Lucas saved thousands of other dogs' lives just by being who he was." John Garcia, Emergency Response Manager and star of TV show DogTown
