Guys a story with a nice ending. Mick Nield from the Oldham Mountain rescue team was in Greenfield and had just finished on a. Call out to a missing dog walker. Mick came across a little terrier called Cassie on Ladhill Lane still attached to her extendable lead. Mick ended up catching the little dog and he took her up to McConnell’s vets at Mossley where she was found to be chipped and had owners at Manchester Road in Greenfield. After some searching an exhausted lady came back to her address where she was informed that her dog Cassie had been found safe and well. Apparently the little dog had slipped a post on Chew Valley Road whilst they were in a local shop. The lady was wet and cold but exhilarated to know that her little dog was safe and well. This little lady was a rescue dog from Romania so this reunion is all the more poignant. Can’t thank Mick Nield enough, Mick is the reluctant hero and always shrugs it off. The lady was so relieved to know her dog was safe and well. Well done Mick and your having a little glitter whether you like it or not. 😁

Our dogs and handlers have just had a big SARDA National training weekend hosted in the Peak District.

Moss and his handler Wardy were up for pre assessment which all went well and looks like they will be going for their operational grading next month in the lakes, let's keep our fingers crossed for them.

Tink and her handler Simon were busy in stage 2 group progressing on extending her search area in size and length of time.

Puppy Dave had his first official lesson in puppy class which was closely watched over by his big brother Search dog Bob. Bob was not amused as this meant that he wasn’t able to be out with the big boys on the hills in the snow.
