So, 5 years ago, I searched for the right dog to be my partner and I found Kodi:
Kodi is a Belgian Malenois (I always spell that wrong, but you get the idea. ;)) and she is now almost 5 years old. She has made 9 live finds for missing people, 5 in disaster events (which is our specialty), and 4 in "wilderness" events. She and I have done hundreds of hours of training to get to that level.
Kodi is also a retired Marin County, California Reserve Deputy Sheriff. She has 5 felony arrest on her record. (The only reason she was retired is I moved out of the area, and they retired her. She's not happy with my move though. She misses the work.)
This has probably been my most rewarding work I've done in life to date...
