Guys, this is heartbreaking

This past week I know of three dogs who have came available - high drive working dogs.

Two because people got them wanting to do SAR but THEN found out it was not for them due to "it wasn't what they expected" - "it cost too much to do" - "I don't have THIS much time" ........ only one of these three dogs is from a handler who suddently passed away and the other two are folks getting a dog that has a working dog temperament and THEN deciding this was not for them.

If you don't have a dog and want to do SAR, for God's sake, please get on a team first, train with them, go on some searches as ground support. The dog that is going to excel at this is not going to be happy in front of the fireplace.

Our team gets at least one or two donation offers a month. It is sad to think where these dogs may wind up.
