Certified in Air Scent
Zuku is a 3 year old black Labrador retriever mix. His journey to Colorado began when his mother, pregnant with 8 puppies, was found wandering the street of McKinney, Texas and transferred to a retriever rescue in Denver. Zuku was born into foster care and adopted at the age of 3 months. His outgoing personality and love to search led us to certification in just over 2 years. Zuku is known for his generally tranquil demeanor that transforms into pure gusto as he enters a scent cone and gallops in for “the find.” When he isn’t working he enjoys backpacking in the mountains, fetching anything that can be thrown, and lounging on the back of the couch. Zuku and I have a long career ahead of us as a wilderness airscent team and will continue to work towards certifications in the avalanche, water and HRD specialties.
