Beloved Service Dog, Bingo, has died.

Bingo and her boy

According to multiple sources, a beloved service dog, who belonged to a young boy from Canada, passed away on Tuesday.

Her name was “Bingo,” and not long ago, she captured the heart of the world when word spread that her 11-year-old boy, Cole Hein, had created a special “Lick it List,” for his ailing friend.

When Cole learned that Bingo, a Jack Russell terrier, had a terminal illness, he set out to make her last days the very best that they could be. On Bingo’s “Lick It List” was a request for treats from around the world.

Suffice to say, as word spread of the thoughtful child’s wish for his treasured dog, the treats, from across the nation, and the globe, began to arrive.

Earlier this week, the inevitable happened when the 14-year-old dog passed away from complications caused by Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome.

Bingo’s story touched many and her legacy will live on.

The Cesar Millan Foundation, together with the Hein family, have created a special fund in Bingo’s honor. Donations to the Bingo Hein Legacy Fund are designated to make dreams come true for shelter dogs.

Per Cole Hein’s request, the first goal is to raise enough money to build an outdoor dog park at a local shelter where dogs can be outside and enjoy the fresh air and play with potential adopters.

The first order of business, per Cole’s request, is to raise enough money to build an outdoor dog park at a local shelter where dogs can be outside and enjoy the fresh air and play with potential adopters.

Donations to the Bingo Hein legacy fund can be made online, or mailed care of the Cesar Millan Foundation at 10844 Burbank Blvd., North Hollywood, CA, 91601.
