Archive for the '~Search Dog~' Category


Rich has been busily working for the last two years with the National Task Force (Urban Search & Rescue Team K-9 Unit).  A couple of weeks ago they were to go and pick up the dogs that had been specifically trained for them.  When they got there, they did not know which dog they were going to match up with who.  There were 4 dogs available but only 3 were ready to go home with their respective new owners.  Well, Rich ended up getting paired with a dog named Bella.  She was the only one that had not been at the foundation long enough and needs about 6 or so weeks more training.  Rich will go back to Gilroy, CA in a couple of months to pick her up.

I know many of you have been asking about Rich and his dog. It seems like it’s been forever for him to get his dog, so I thought I’d post two pictures here of Bella to show you just how beautiful she is!  The entire family is excited and can’t wait for her arrival and to introduce her to our other two cuties, Taylor and Dio.

Thank you to those of you that have been praying for Rich.  Yes, he was a little disappointed that he didn’t get to bring his dog home, but I honestly think something good will come out of this! 😀
