SARDOC recently lost one of our finest. Thunder was a German Shepherd who fielded with her handler, Estelle Purvis, through Larimer County Search and Rescue. She was certified in Air Scent for 9 years and helped with many missions. She was a tenacious worker and always supplied excellent information on searches.
In addition to Air Scent, Thunder also trained in Disaster and Water. She was much loved by everyone in SARDOC. Hiding for her was tremendously fun. She would come running in and bark, bark, bark until she decided to go back and get Estelle. She loved searching and playing with her reward toy more than anything.
Thunder will be missed by so many people.
