Happy Seventh Birthday to Dino!


Happy Seventh Birthday to Dino!

Six years ago on this day, Dino was brought to my apartment in Hayward by Georgette Musante with Grateful Dogs Rescue, and he stayed forever.

Since then we have spent almost 24 hours a day with each other, and completed so much, traveling all over California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Arizona, Texas and New Mexico.

He is enjoying a big rawhide bone now and still sleeping in bed.

Here is Dino’s blog that details the beginning all the way up to today:

I am looking forward to the next six years and beyond.

His roommates, Palo, Rusty and June, all members of his fan club, also say Happy Birthday!

After 13 years, 2012 was the first year that AKC allowed Mixed Breeds to enter the ACE Awards!

Search and Rescue — Dino — owned by Jackie Phillips of San Leandro, CA

Dino has been working full time throughout Northern California as a tracking dog to find lost pets since January 2009. He has worked 350 cases and made multiple finds of both alive and deceased animals. His tracking efforts have also led to many clues that resulted in pets being found following the search. In April, Dino took only 30 minutes to find a dog that had been missing for more than two days in San Francisco. 

Dino originally had been surrendered to the San Francisco animal shelter and had been slated for euthanasia after being labeled "untrainable and out of control." Luckily, Grateful Dog Rescue thought differently and saved him. Jackie adopted him three months later and today Dino has many achievements in addition to his life-saving search and rescue skills. Officially known as Woodland's Court Jester UD RAE, Dino is the first mixed-breed to earn the AKC's Rally Advanced Excellent title and the second mixed-breed to earn the Utility Dog title.
