While there were lots of GSDs, as we all might expect, I'd like to especially point out the white GSDs in the video. Because they are DQ by AKC due to their color for lots of things, they're still out there doing very meaningful work!
But all the dog's, of any breed (and their handlers), doing SAR then or now...I salute you all! Thank you SO much for your service to mankind!
Thank you for sharing, it is very emotional.
Loved the quote:
"Dogs have given us their absolute all.
We are the center of their universe.
We are the focus of their love and faith and trust.
It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.
I remember hearing stories that search and rescues teams had to have people hide so the dogs can find them. The dogs were not finding anybody alive and the dogs were getting depressed. Deeply emotional. They are sure the light on the darkest of days. Thank you for sharing the video I enjoyed seeing all the different kinds of gsds - so many. I can’t imagine a world without these people and their dogs- who are incredibly brave and selfless- thank you.

Unique things you have trained your dog to do, and how you did it... Things that are not part of traditional obedience but friends find amazing!
I have taught my dogs that they are only allowed on the main floor of the house. Not upstairs, not in the basement. No gates no doors. I...
I've had a problem where I can't get my 1 and half year old, female GSD to relieve herself outside with ample time. She usually will go to the restroom sooner than later outside but sometimes she seems to hold it in. My past dogs have all been male and you could take them out and tell them to...
I am adding a second dog (female puppy, 8 weeks) and anxious my male (3 year old, neutered) will not take to her as he is used to being the only dog. In the past he has always shown interest and been sweet to puppies, but I can't help but worry he will be jealous? I am hoping his instincts will...
My girl is intact and almost 7 months old. Every time I take her anywhere where she spots other dogs, she starts barking loudly. She never used to do that before. During her obedience classes, she would only get anxiety and bark at other dogs who were whining or barking, otherwise she was quiet...
