The "Olate Dogs," a dog act led by a 55-year-old man Richard Olate, and his son Nicholas Olate won "America's Got Talent" 2012 Thursday night taking home a $1 million dollar prize, a show in Las Vegas.
After their last performance yesterday, judge Howard Stern said they got a level of expertise of training with the dogs that he had never seen before. Olate grew up in South America in a poor family and has performed in a circus since he was 12. The "Olate Dogs" currently has four completely different dog acts. Most of Richard's dogs are rescues from shelters.
