Certified in Air Scent and Avalanche
Shakti is an 8 year old Belgian Malinois certified in Wilderness Air Scent and Avalanche.
Shakti’s half sister, “Isis”, was also a search dog. She lives in Evergreen, Colorado but enjoys traveling to seminars and conferences.
Shakti’s favorite thing about being a search dog is the excitement of looking for people she doesn’t know in new places. She loves working hard and solving mysteries. She also loves the snow and having people throw her toy and tug with her. She enjoys riding in snowmobiles, on chair lifts and in helicopters. She works well in the city too, as if it’s just a concrete wilderness without bears or mountain lions. Shakti is smart, opinionated, outspoken, and sweet. She’s protective about strangers, but is able to “make friends” on cue by touching their hands with her wet nose.
