9780737713619: Animals with Jobs - Rescue Dogs

The primary job of rescue dogs is to help save lives. Using their strong scenting abilities, dogs locate people buried under the debris of earthquakes and collapsed buildings. They also find people lost in the wilderness, entrenched by avalanches, and drowned victims.

Review:

"Middle grade animal lovers seeking report topics will want to know about these slim volumes in the new Animals with Jobs series...these are lively introductions to specialized topics that will grab student interest. Numerous photographs of varying quality further support the material."
-- Booklist (April 2002) (Booklist 20020401)

"Each volume in this series describes the characteristics of the animal that make it suitable for the work to be done. All of the books will be useful for reports and helpful as career studies for students thinking of working with animals. Recommended."
-- Library Talk (May-June 2002) (Library Talk 20020601)

"Given the lack of material on this topic, her resource lists will be valuable."
-- School Library Journal (April 2002) (School Library Journal 20020401)

"These titles will be of interest to readers eager to know more about the world of animals at work."
-- School Library Journal (April 2002) (School Library Journal 20020401)

"An interesting, well-written book on the role of rescue dogs in disasters, from avalanches to terrorist attacks. Characteristics, suitable breeds, training, and how the animals and their handlers spend their off-duty hours are discussed. Examples of individual dogs, such as two German shepherds that found lost people and a Newfoundland trained to jump from a helicopter into water, add to the title?s appeal. Several of the color photos are memorable, such as the pictures of a dog racing along with a ski patrolman and a rescuer sitting with her Doberman, but in others the dogs are obscured."
-- School Library Journal (September 2003) (School Library Journal 20030901)
