Describes the work and training of different kinds of search and rescue dogs, including wilderness dogs, bloodhounds, disaster dogs, and avalanche dogs, and discusses the work of a dog named Jake who helped on the site of the World Trade Center.

Facts on File
Uncover the difficult training exercises and heroic real-life stories of search and rescue dogs, their handlers, and their brilliant teamwork. Among the amazingly true tales: a disaster search and rescue dog leaps from metal beam to concrete slab while trying to locate an earthquake victim trapped beneath the rubble of a fallen building; a group of children lost in the forest is saved by a wilderness search and rescue canine; and a snow slide buries a young mother, until an avalanche dog comes to her rescue.
