The Pine Creek K-9 Search Unit now has two certified cadaver search dogs, Jake and Deliliah.
The dogs, with their handler Trudy Garvey, completed their certification through North Star International K-9 Training Association on Oct. 8 in Seymour, Ind.
Search unit members have been working toward these certifications for 18 months. The team now has three, different types of search dogs: air scent, human trail and cadaver dogs.
The Pine Creek K-9 Search Unit is a non-profit, all volunteer K-9 Search team that is based out of Jefferson County.
The unit covers northwest and central Pennsylvania and will assist statewide and nationwide by official request.
