History of Buddy:
Buddy served with distinction as a search-and-rescue dog with the Metro West Fire Protection District. Working alongside Engineer/Paramedic Brad Stahlman, the yellow Labrador retriever quickly developed a known record for tracking and finding the most difficult of victims.
Buddy logged more than 200 search-and-rescue missions. He located bodies below the surface of the Meramec River and found individuals lost in the roughest terrain. In May of 2011, Buddy and Stahlman traveled to Joplin, Missouri where they searched for victims and survivors in the aftermath of a deadly tornado. As a state and regional asset, Buddy was steadfast in his determination to perform at the highest level.
