Sierra, a Golden Retriever puppy, with a knack for hide-and-seek becomes an unlikely K-9 hero when a young neighbor girl goes missing. Little Sierra turns a childhood game into a life-saving mission and earns her official Search & Rescue K-9 vest.
Robert “Bob” Calkins has been a search and rescue dog handler in Kitsap County, Washington, for more than 12 years. He currently searches with K-9 Ruger, his third search dog, a four year old Golden Retriever. He and his dogs have responded to everything from routine missing person cases to homicides and the horrific landslide that in 2014 had swept over homes in the small community of Oso, Washington.
Bob is the author of the Sierra the Search Dog series of books for children and adults..
