Ana Hernandez is the founder of Children's Home Society Emissaries. She is a board member of Big Brother Big Sisters Women's Committee and this year’s co-chair of the Lori Brenner Scholarship event. She is also co-chair of this year's Special Olympics Fashion Show. Ana is the proud owner of Jack.

What was Jack’s Halloween costume and where did he go? Jack was a pirate for Halloween. He enjoyed a weekend at home with the family.

Tell me about Jack: age, tricks, favorite treat and favorite toy. Jack is a four-year-old Yorkie. I purchased Jack at a premium puppy boutique in New York City called Le Petit Puppy. I actually met Sarah Jessica Parker at the store the day she bought her puppy.

Jack's favorite thing to do is to go swimming in our pool during the summer. Even though he’s a Yorkie, he loves to swim almost every day!

Jack has an entire basket of toys. His favorite toy is his monkey and his favorite treat is his hueso, which means bone in Spanish. He gets one every day.

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why? If I could be any animal, I would want to be Jack. He gets lots of love and attention. He's a free spirit - he does whatever he wants whenever he wants to do it.

About Paws 4 You Rescue

Paws 4 You Rescue is a Miami-based non-profit 501(c)3, all volunteer, donor-subsidized animal rescue organization. Its top priority is to save animals from euthanasia at Miami-Dade Animal Services.

Rescued animals vary from being sick, injured, homeless and surrendered to simply lost. All animals are sterilized, vaccinated and ID micro-chipped to prevent future loss. Some require major surgery from a specialist to repair broken limbs while others may need additional rehabilitation time and specific medical care - ranging from respiratory illnesses and skin infections to cherry eyes and heartworm treatments.

Paws 4 You offers programs for adoption, fostering and senior citizens. Paws 4 You supports its mission by hosting numerous fundraising events throughout the year and through community donations.
