The 2021 winner of Nationwide’s Hambone Award for the most unusual pet insurance claim was Bruin, a 3-year-old German Shepherd Dog from Stevenson Ranch, California, who has completely recovered after surviving a 400- foot fall off a steep cliff into a canyon and four days lost in the wilderness while seriously injured.

Bruin was eventually found and treated for a broken femur, collapsed lung, internal bleeding and a shattered leg that required surgery.

Bruin’s family will receive prizes from Nationwide, and the hospital that treated him, ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital — Los Angeles, will receive a $10,000 Nationwide-funded award through the Veterinary Care Foundation.
