BRUCEVILLE-EDDY, TX — The world's most amazing dog could be right here in Central Texas.

Felicia Foy and her 4-year-old Australian Cattle dog, Supernova, are semi-finalists in a Facebook watch show called the "World's Most Amazing Dog."

It is a competition-type show where people from around the world compete with different tricks to find out who has the most amazing dog.

When Foy saw people post videos of their dogs auditioning for the Facebook show, she joined in. Little did she know she would need to fly to Los Angeles for the semi-finals on Saturday.

"I was like, 'whatever, we'll try it and see what happens' and it ended up being life changing for me," Foy said.

Supernova is a very talented pup being able to accomplish tricks that most dogs can't do.

Foy teaching her tricks started out as a fun past time to channel in on all of Supernova's energy.

"I'd seen y'know people do tricks with their dogs before and I said, 'that sounds like it would be really fun with her.' Well she picked up on things right away," Foy said.

Supernova isn't just a dog with tricks, she is also registered as a service dog for Foy, who suffers from PTSD, diabetes and a panic disorder.

Supernova has saved Foy's life on more than one occasion.

"She is my lifeline," Foy said.

Supernova is able to pick up on Foy's low blood sugar levels, even before Foy thinks about checking. If her blood sugar drops too low, Supernova is able to help when Foy is in need.

"So, her being able to be there and alert to that and tell me way before y'know any of that is a life saver to me," Foy said.

Foy and Supernova are competing against nine other contestants in "The World's Most Amazing Dog." The episode will air Thursday at 7 p.m. CT.

After the episode is aired, viewers have 48 hours to vote on their favorite. The grand prize is $100,000.

If she wins, Foy plans to give back to the community with her earnings.

"There is a restaurant called Eagles Landing here that is owned by a wonderful woman, that has done so much for the community," Foy said. "But she works a second job just to support her restaurant."

No matter what happens after the semi-finals, Foy is happy she got the opportunity to compete.

Even if she doesn't win, she believes she already has the world's most amazing dog.
