Handler: Connie K.

Number of Finds: 2 finds and 1 assist!

Non-SAR Trick: "Told me to turn the fan on by looking at me and rolling her eyes to the fan - repeatedly. Also took me to the refrigerator by grasping my arm and pulling me there."

Notes: Kassie received several thank-you letters and a certificate of appreciation from the Fairfax Police Dept. in May 2008. She was picked as one of 3 dogs to go on a mission to the jungles of Guyana South America, looking for a downed aircraft in August 2008. There she did her job, but also was an ambassador of love and friendship to their children.
