Can we hear a paws-up cheer for a search and rescue dog on his very first mission, who helped to find a missing dog in McCleary, Washington over the weekend? Tino, the pooch-in-training for such an important job is from Useless Bay Sanctuary, a nonprofit organization who helps dogs  to be reunited with their owners.

According to Fox News, on Saturday Tino went out on his mission to find Puppy who had disappeared Thursday while out on a trail ride with his owner Karen James. Puppy was found less than a mile from his home, off the well traveled trail, and had become trapped in thick mud and had not been able to free himself.

Puppy had been trapped for more than 40 hours and rescuers used ropes to free him.

Useless Bay Sanctuary’s Facebook page provides  helpful suggestions for rescuers and Good Samaritans often trying to capture a lost, stray or injured dog. Check it out.
