Bred to be a Hero
A lot goes into selecting a quality search and rescue dog. Long before the pups are a twinkle in their parent's eyes, responsible and knowledgeable breeders are looking at great traits, qualities, and temperament in their dogs. We chose to work with Gypsy Oak Retrievers. They specialize in training exceptional field trial/hunting dogs. They recommended two outstanding pups, and we ended up with a litter of nine amazingly alert and intelligent Black Labradors. Each wore a different color collar so we could tell them apart. Frankie wore a green one so the name his breeders gave him was, "The Hulk."
