A former rescue dog turned search and rescue canine has now become a great help in locating missing people after he is being deemed qualified for the job.
Dyno who was just a pup at six months of age at that time was adopted by Matthew Massey from a rehoming center based off of Shrewsbury.
Matthew was an active volunteer serving under Severn Area Rescue Association or SARA. He had wanted to give any dog that has a great potential and great chance of becoming a part of the specialists’ team a forever loving home. Young Dyno immediately showed them that great potential the moment they met.
As stated by Massey, a dog must be intelligent, friendly to people and loves interacting with them, and must possess great motivation towards work. And because of the reward-based training, they must also love toys. The list to qualify a dog was quite long but as soon as he coordinated with the center, Dyno was suggested immediately. Matthew knew Dyno ticked everything in the list the moment they met.
Two years of strict training with Matthew’s supervision and Dyno graduated with achievements. He bears the Search Dog Standard for Search and Rescue with accreditation.
Dyno now serves as a lowland search and rescue canine under SARA and an on-call for West Merica and West Midlands Police. He had successfully worked on eleven searches all for missing people since he graduated.
Matthew was very thrilled with the manner Dyno takes makes of his new found life. He trained well and was quick to pick new things up. Now, they can be sent for at any time and every time the go out, Dyno is always excited. As soon as Dyno coat is on; he starts barking, eager to take on the job. He is focused and very effective on the job. Matthew says Dyno has become a real star and is really proud of him.
