Two rescue Labrador Retrievers have been sent to Canada to protect the environment.
Labrador Rescuers, a group based in San Diego, found a home for two rescued Labradors in Canada where they will help save wildlife.
The two Labradors, Dallas and Diesel, took a private plane to Canada to start working for the Fish and Game Company. These awesome Labs will search out invasive species.
Dallas may be blind, but his disability does not hinder him from performing well at his job. Lori Ring trained the awesome Labradors to navigate around the home.
“This is such a good move for him, he will have such a great adventure,” she said.
Lori credits Dallas’ “can do” attitude for helping him perform well at his job.What Dallas lacks in sight, he makes up with his incredible nose.
“He will sniff the boats as they come in to see if there’s any muscles on them. It’s such an amazing gift for him to use his skills,” said Ring.
On the other hand, Diesel will be protecting wildlife –specifically elephants who are poached for their ivory tusks.
Dallas and Diesel acquired their skills with the help of Maria Goldman and the rest of her Lab rescue team.
“We re-home Labs that come from the shelter, abandoned, found on the streets as strays or families who can no longer take them. So they come to us,” she said.
Ten volunteers came along with Dallas and Diesel on the private plane to Canada. These awesome pooches arrived safely and started training on Thursday.
