From National Search Dog Alliance:
K-9 Cooler Nite was one of the first K-9's on Tennessee Special Response Team-A (TN SRT-A). She and her handler, Bonnie Grooms, joined TN SRT-A in March of 2004. Since that time, they had participated in over thirty searches until K-9 Cooler retired in 2009 due to health issues.
K-9 Cooler was certified as a Canine Sartech II in Area Search and Human Remains Detection (land) She had also been trained in tracking. Cooler was called out many times to search in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. She responded to diverse types of calls such as a missing horse and rider; lost hikers; missing Alzheimer's patients; and a skeleton found by turkey hunters.
Cooler's SAR legacy will live on with her handler and granddaughters, K-9 Diamond and K-9 Bandy. Both dogs are nationally certified in Human Remains Detection (land) as well.
