Olate Dogs, the performing-canine act that won Season 7 of "America's Got Talent" Thursday night on NBC, performed in St. Louis with Circus Flora in June and again in December.
"Richard Olate, his family and his dogs come to Circus Flora from Chile, where Olate discovered his talent as an animal trainer with an abundance of stray dogs," Circus Flora said at the time.
Olate Dogs were chosen winners over a human comedian, Tom Cotter. Judge Sharon Osbourne, who is leaving the show after this season, was a big champion of the dogs throughout the season; after their win, she handed out hugs all around.
Olate Dogs won $1 million (awarded as an annuity) and a headlining show in Las Vegas.
