Today we are greatly saddened by the passing of Career-Changed Petra over the weekend (6/2/03 - 2/18/17). Her owner, Kim Bidwell writes:
"I wanted to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to attain a career change dog and use her skills to continue to help people in a different way. She was a certified search and rescue dog that helped find missing people. Her great breeding and early training helped her excel in her new job. I could put her in any situation and she handled it like a pro. The bond we had was unique and I will miss her greatly. Thank you again for all the great things you do to help many people."
