Go Juan Diamond Go
"I just wanted you to be among the first to hear that Heirborn's Searching for Juan Diamond in the Ruff aka Coal (aka Rick to Sarah) is Oregon's most recently certified Human Remains Detection K9!!! A couple of days ago we took our Oregon State Sheriff's Association certification test. At 14 months everyone was amazed at the pup! The test consists of a 300x300' forested area with 6 'hot' containers and three 'blanks' hidden from view. The team has 60 minutes to find and properly alert at 4 hot sources with NO incorrect alerts. The test is administered by an OSSA Master K9 Handler. We took 25 minutes to take the test. Whew! That boy runs like the wind!! So proud of him!We are now considered mission ready and can deploy when called upon. We will recertify every two years and also work toward certifications for buried and elevated sources. Thank you for paring me up with Coal! He's a wonderful companion and an excellent SAR partner! I will send you a photo of him when we get our certificate next month!My brother is also quite happy with his girl Ryelee (aka Asia) and they hunt whenever the season allows! She is a fabulous family member and his best friend! Coal and Rye will be catching up this weekend at the Easter festivities!"
