Matilija NDSDF Hero

“Hero” born here at our home was purchased by three friends of mine and donated to the Search Dog foundation. I was already donating a puppy from that litter of ten to search and rescue, Hero had such potential that my friends could not let her go to a pet home. This pup needed a job!

She became a FEMA certified advanced search dog. Hero went to New Orleans as well as other deployments over the years. Her name was not due to her job- her litter was  born the year our high school did the musical “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The Forum”. Hero was named after the main character, I had so many girls in that Chuck/Jewel litter Hero had to have a boy name! It fit her well in her role as Search dog.
