Sadie, A Local Hero
"I purchased, at the time "Sally" from Tranquil Acres in October of 2007. Sally has become "Sadie" to our family. She has been the greatest dog ever. I recently joined the Orange County Sheriff's Department and started formal training with Sadie in July of 2009. Sadie's qualification trail was 1 1/2 miles long Sadie was qualified in May 2010. Just 2 1/2 months after her qualification Sadie had a walk up find and saved this gentleman's life. There have been several bloodhounds that have worked their entire career that have not a had a walk up find. So I am writing this letter to thank you again for my companion and partner. Please read the attached link from our local paper. Sadie is a hero around town now and might receive a medal of honor for life saving."
