Finding Ruth

A Grueling Two-Day Search

Kobuk is a Search & Rescue Dog trained for Wilderness Air Scent Detection. He can be deployed for 6-8 hours at a time, sometimes for 2-3 days at a time.

In 2014, Ruth Brennan rented a cabin in the woods of Maine, went for a walk, and didn’t return. Kobuk and his handler went searching. Ruth has diabetes, dementia, and other medical issues, so Kobuk worked long and hard to find her.

After two days of searching, Kobuk’s training and fierce determination helped rescue Ruth and reunite her with her family.
