K9 Rex

2002 - 2012

Qualifications: Wilderness Search

Handler: Nancy T.

Breed: German Shepherd Dog

Notes: Rex was an intense dog with an abundance of drive. He taught new handlers how to “play”, and quite often succeeding in genuinely stealing both of his toys from his decoy. If he didn’t have both his Kongs in his mouth, he was usually barking. Rex and Nancy responded to many searches over 6 years, and he was an passionate worker. They made a great team; an example of service and professionalism for the next generation of handlers.
