Default K9 Jester, OCFA USAR



Quote:
I am sorry to announce that yesterday, one of our US&R Canine Handlers, Fire Captain Davis Doty was forced to put down his Search Canine “Jester”

Jester’s service life began when he was rescued by the National Search Dog Foundation from a shelter. He had been scheduled to be euthanized and was on his final days of life when the National Search Dog Foundation found him. Fortunately for him, and all of us, the National Search Dog Foundation saw him when they did and took a chance on a dog in his final days of life. As we all now know, the National Search Dog Foundation’s bet paid off and Jester became a member of CA TF-5. His natural drive and work ethic made him perfect for our US&R Team. For those of you who were fortunate enough to see Captain Doty and Jester work together, you know how special the relationship and bond was.

Jester’s last year of life was a busy one, with deployments to Hurricane Harvey and to the Montecito mud and debris flows, where he worked himself to near exhaustion searching for savable people. Jester was one of our first OCFA canines and will be missed by many.
