Duncan is an almost 2 year old male Great Dane that is looking for a forever home. New owner must be willing to attend a minimum of 3 private obedience classes at Canine Connection. Although Duncan does well with large dogs, he would be better suited as an only dog. Classes must be completed before he is placed. PM or post inquiries here. ...

And... it’s a wrap folks! Still several days travel to reach Ohio/home but away we go!
This deployment has been bittersweet as it has been shared with my partner whose FEMA career retirement is not so far away. Rush has checked all the boxes of everything I’ve ever wanted in a USAR K9. He is heart and soul and I’m so very glad I had this opportunity with him and my teammates of Ohio Task Force One. Thanks to all that have sent messages, texts and support during this deployment. And most of all, thanks to family and staff that holds down the home front when I’m gone I wish I could relay the gratitude expressed by the people of Louisiana to each of you.
Adios Hurricane Laura!
