We are quite proud of one of our K-9 members. Mittru (handler Chris Buff).  Mittru worked 911 and put closure to several families. Mittru has his own page in a book that was published for all our brave friends, Dog Heroes of September 11th.

 

                                                                      

                                   MITTRU  

On November 19, 2011 Mittru crossed over the Rainbow Bridge to wait for Chris to join him.

Mittru touched many lives and will be remembered for all the good that he has done and the faces he has kissed.


Mittru is a male GSD, from Chestnut Ridge Kennels. He has participated in many searches, becoming advanced operational in early summer of 2001. Mittru's searches include drownings on Lake Ontario, the Long Island Sound and our local lakes, 9-11-01 Fresh Kills Landfill recovery, and a house explosion in Oswego County. Mittru is now with us in our hearts and will always be remembered. (1998-2011)

Rest well dear friend.

 

 

 

KEENA

Keena is an 11 year old female GSD from Chestnut Ridge Kennels. Keena has been on many searches and has many documented finds under her collar including several drowning on the Finger Lakes and several live finds.

Sadly Keena is no longer with us. Keena is waiting at the Rainbow Bridge with Mittru since July 20, 2012 waiting for Brian to join her.

She will always be in our hearts.

Handler: Brian Buff
