Hero Dogs – Sadie

16 Feb

dog wash in EvergreenThe American Humane Association’s annual Hero Dog Awards honor those dogs used in service or those that have done extraordinary things. A Westminster, Colorado dog named Sadie was a 2011 recipient of this honor. A nationally certified accelerant detection K-9, Sadie works in the Major Crimes Unit of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. She has worked approximately 400 fires, and has assisted in cases resulting in numerous arrests, including high-profile arson/homicide cases where her nose has detected critical evidence for collection and prosecution. She has never lost in court. Sadie has worked in extreme environments (high-rise buildings, collapsing structures, snow-covered mountains) and never missed a call to duty. She has an incredibly friendly demeanor and conducts approximately 50 demonstrations a year to promote fire safety and fire prevention. Sadie is truly an ambassador for all working dogs, and was more than deserving of this national honor.
