Two new Search Teams graduate and join the SDF roster!

On Friday, January 20, 2017, SDF proudly added two new Search Teams to our roster during the Search Team Graduation Ceremony at our NTC. Bob George & Shadow and Mike Toepfer & Demi join the ranks of 63 SDF-trained Search Teams nationwide as part of California Task Force 2, part of Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Despite heavy rain, the Graduation Ceremony was moved inside the Petco Foundation Canine Pavilion where veteran Search Teams, canine recruiters, Search Dog Sponsors, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Harris, SDF’s staff, friends and family gathered to celebrate this great accomplishment. The ceremony shared the Search Dogs’ stories of recruitment from the shelter as well as anecdotes from their months of intensive training at our National Training Center.
