Description

Here is my nomination for the 2014 Hero Dog Awards for my dog, Dino, otherwise known as:  

MB-GCh UKC-UWP UKC-URO1 Woodacre's Court Jester AKC-UD MB-CD AKC-RAE ASCA-RE APDT-RL3 MB-RA ABLSA-SR1 MB-VM2 CCC-OV TT2 CGC BM-NDD SB-DD

Dino has been working full time throughout California and Nevada as a tracking dog to help find lost pets since January 2009. Now in our 5th year, with over 500 cases to date, many of those cases covering multiple days, Dino has had many finds, both of alive and deceased animals. In addition, Dino’s tracking efforts has led directly to many pets being found following the search.

Here is a link to the case blog with all cases documented:

Here is a link to a page that lists dogs and cats who Dino has found alive while on the search:

In 2012 and 2013, Dino won Honorable Mentions in the Search/Rescue category for the AKC Humane Fund ACE Awards.

Dino has a blog that chronicles every achievement since the day I adopted him from Grateful Dog Rescue in December 2006.

Dino has many accomplishments and many "firsts" as a Mixed Breed in the show ring, including the first Mixed Breed to earn two Drafting titles and the first Mixed Breed to earn a Rally Advanced Excellent title!
