Search and Rescue Dogs in Japan

As we all know Search and Rescue dog teams have been deployed to Japan to help find survivors of the aftermath. Here is an article about some of the teams from the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation. This group rescues dogs out of shelters and trains them for Search and Rescue. Sandpoint has even had a dog sent to them from the Panhandle Animal Shelter! They take dogs that are highly driven from all over and bring them to their facility in California for a year of training before being handed over to their new handler.
