Robin and Tru have been working as a team since Tru was 6 months old. Robin describes Tru as “a nose with four legs”. Tru is a 6 year old Standard Poodle who is nationally-certified in Wilderness Air Scent by Search and Rescue Dogs of the United States. Robin and Tru are also members of Empact Northwest, which is an Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) team trained to respond to both domestic and international disasters.
Tru’s favorite past time is disemboweling his stuffed toys, swimming in the river, and keeping Robin in shape.
When Robin isn’t training for canine search and rescue she works as a pediatric physical therapist and is also a member of CERT, ARES/RACES, Cowlitz Co. SAR, and Washington State SAR Planning Unit.
