Our amazing K9s are the life blood of our work. They are our partners, friends and family.
Our Scent Specific K9s are professionally trained to recover children and adults using the quickest route to the victim. We do not use technique based protocols which focus a scent dogs training on method and technique as found in Search and Rescue and law enforcement. Our natural dog focused system and recovery process has proven successful when others have failed. In addition, our dogs regularly work and train on human scent trails that are several months old.
Like most of the dogs on our K9 TEAM, York is a rescue dog. He came to us from a high kill shelter in Oklahoma where he was scheduled to be euthanized due to testing positive for tick fever and having an injury.
We could see the drive, determination and heart within the young injured dog. He joined our K9 team and has been a leader in our pack ever since.
He is skilled and efficient, having found several missing family members when other search dogs and techniques had failed.
Missing 16 days...
Law enforcement, search parties and volunteer K9 handlers had all been tasked to help find the young missing man in the preceding weeks. On the 16th day, K9 York quickly brought closure to the family.
Jett is the team's canine Einstein. This intellectual Feist from Tennessee, leads the team with multiple disciplines and skill sets. Reliable and honest, Jett understands the investigative process and communicates information through barks and alerts. It is amazing to watch this high drive dog work and decipher a case.
And he is correct. What looks like a ball under the log is actually a human body part.
He tracks the subject from the witness sighting.
