A dog’s life: Chickasaw Nation agencies rely on K-9 helpers
Story Link
www.gainesvilleregister.com wrote:Roxxi — Search and rescue

Roxxi is a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois/Dutch shepherd with almost two years of service with the Chickasaw Nation. She possesses a national certification for open area human remains detection with the National Association for Search and Rescue.

Roxxi is affectionate but all business when it is time to work. When not on the job, she loves to play with her ball.

She came from Barry and Becky Switzer’s Ground Zero Emergency Training Center in Tuttle, Oklahoma. The Switzers officially presented her to Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby and Chickasaw Nation Emergency Management Canine Handler Adam Kuhlman during a special ceremony in 2018.
