Neil Powell has been a dog handler for more than forty years and the dogs in his charge (breeds including the Alsatian, bloodhound, retriever and Labrador) have participated in every kind of search and rescue: from daring mountaineering rescues in the Mourne Mountains to helping to find victims of the Lockerbie bombing, from training the first Drowned Victim Recovery Dogs in Ireland to preparing two rescue Labradors to sniff out pirate DVDs for the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America).
Neil and his dogs have participated in countless searches and saved many lives in Ireland, the United Kingdom and worldwide. Both heroic working dogs and much loved family pets, all the dogs in the book have their own quirks and personalities, but it’s their remarkable bond with Neil that forms the heart of this book. Search Dogs & Me is a heartwarming, inspiring and beautifully told story that proves once more the extraordinary things that man and dog can achieve by working together.
