We join a local group of volunteers as they train dogs for search and rescue missions. These dogs save lives. They are trained to smell someone certain smell and go search for them. They are trained through many missions. There are obstacles built designed to have the dogs adjust to certain settings. Some are specialize in different places and task then otherwise. One dog named Jessie is an air scented dog she specializes in the outdoors and wilderness. Once the dog completes its mission they get paid and rewarded with a toy. Its not all about the dogs as well this organization is devoted to find and rescue people. They are like a family , some are actually married and these are their everyday pets and family members as well. They love to give back and help their community in a special need.
