Search and Rescue
Huckleberry was rescued by the East Bay SPCA in Oakland from the Berkeley shelter in November 2007. Because of his excellent physical and mental abilities, Search and Rescue Foundation, www.searchdogfoundation.org, an organization which pulls candidates from shelters, was contacted and Huckleberry was put through the many tests to see whether he would qualify. Once he proved his mettle, he was put through the rigorous training to become a bona fide search and rescue dog. See this month’s Bay Woof for more details about Huckleberry’s story.
