4th graders at Northwood Elementary had a great time visiting with retired sheriff Chris Hellier and his amazing search and rescue dog Raleigh. Chris talked to students about how he and Raleigh train for search and rescue missions, and about how Raleigh found a missing child their first day on the job.
Chris and Raleigh also demonstrated their skills by asking students to hide one of Raleigh’s toys in the classroom. It didn’t take Raleigh long at all to find it!
Thanks to Karen Gibson and Pet Partners for helping to arrange Chris and Raleigh’s visit to Northwood.
Program volunteer Allison Dunmore wrote about the program for Happy Tails.
