|This pic looks like the Virginia Task Force 1 w/c was the first U.S. USAR team to deploy to Haiti. This team is also the designated Urban Search and Rescue team to be the first official American response to international disasters. This is the elite. I believe they have 2 GSDs among the six dogs in that first task force. Does anyone have any idea of the lines of these 2 GSDs?|
Nerve strength is the one trait that is most lacking in today's GSDs, and I can't think of a tougher test of solid nerves than SAR at this level.

|Excellent pedigree - loaded. All the usual suspects are there on father's side and a lot of great dogs and a few usual suspects on the mother's side. That is one genetic working dog.|
Best of luck to him and his handler.
