by Mr. Taleteller on

Okay, readers, today’s Search And Rescue Saturday is admittedly a re-post from a few years ago.  In the last two weeks, I’ve received a few emails from people interested in getting “working” dogs.  I thought this would be a good time to share our experience with my K-9 partner, Kuster during his early years with […]
