About this title


This book tells the story of one of the dogs introduced in the novel “K-9 SEARCH: One Handler’s Journey”. This of course is Gus’s true story. Complete with photos of him as he was, as he worked and as he lived. Gus was a unique dog whose personality was bigger than he was. His joy and love of life overflowed to everyone who came in contact with him. And while those he helped likely never got to meet him, perhaps here they can. If you have ever lost a treasured friend, consolation comes from telling their tale to others. Sharolyn tells Gus’s tale so he can live on and continue to help others.

About the Author:

Sharolyn Sievert, a Dog Writers Association of America (DWAA) finalist in 2015, is an engineering coordinator by trade and has been active in volunteer Search and Rescue since 2003. A member of Central Lakes Search and Rescue, she responds with her unit to calls from Law Enforcement from across the Upper Midwest of the United States to search for missing persons. The strength and purpose of their motto, “. . . so that others may live.” is not taken lightly. While she truly loves training dogs to cultivate and heighten their innate skills to locate the human scent, the goal is serious. Sharolyn was born in Tachikowa, Japan in an Air Force Base hospital on Mother’s Day, and her brothers liked to tell people that her left big toe is stamped ‘Made in Japan’ (it really isn’t). Sharolyn’s dad was an Eagle Scout and throughout his life, an avid outdoorsman and hunter. Because of her Dad’s love of the outdoors, family outings were often spent hiking in the woods and vacations meant camping. Her sister noted how very proud he would have been of his daughter's work with Search and Rescue. Sharolyn’s personal knowledge of outdoor survival, gleaned from a lifetime of experience, adds both to her skill as a SAR volunteer and to the accuracy of the SAR work presented in her book. Her family is incredibly proud and supportive of her “out of the norm” volunteer work. The miles spent on the road, crashing through woods in all weather, the hours of training, are a precious gift to those she serves. Over the years Sharolyn has trained and certified four different dogs in multiple disciplines, and responded to many, many searches. Additionally, she serves as an instructor, a speaker, a K-9 evaluator, and maintains certification in a number of areas beyond the K-9 work she loves, including being a Certified Minnesota Emergency Manager. Her hope is that the reader will find in the pages of her books an appreciation for the incredible, highly skilled work that a Search and Rescue dog can do, and the amazing dedication it takes to be a K-9 Search and Rescue handler.
