Rhode Island State Police Trooper Dan O'Neil and K-9 Ruby are scheduled to appear on the "Today" show Friday morning.

O'Neil and Ruby taped a segment showcasing three of the finalists in the American Humane Hero Dog Awards on the Hallmark Channel.

The segment will air during the fourth hour of "Today" with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb at 11 a.m. on NBC 10.

Ruby gained fame last year when she helped rescue a 19-year-old in the woods of Glocester who'd been missing for more than 36 hours.
