Search and Rescue
Keahi – Belgian Tervuren,  handled by Kristi Smith of Peoria, AZ
Seven-year-old Keahi (key-ah-hee; Hawaiian for “fire”) is  from a line of high-achieving show and performance dogs. During her career with  Arizona Search Track and Rescue, Keahi has proved to be durable, versatile, and  uncannily accurate.
Certified in air-scent, avalanche, cadaver, evidence, and  human-remains searches, the in-demand Terv has answered the call in nine states  and Canada. She and Smith conduct approximately 43 searches a year, logging  between 91 and 126 work days a year—a strenuous pace for any search team.
Smith and Keahi have found lost children and wandering  seniors, led investigators to the bodies of murder victims and those who have  drowned (including one find 170 feet under water), and recovered key evidence  in criminal investigations.
Smith’s fellow K-9 handler Claudia Schmitz says, “When not  actively working the field on missions, Keahi goes out of her way to interact  with the searchers, family, investigators and anyone else on scene, helping  them feel better under quite often tragic situations.”
In 2008, Keahi gave birth to a litter of seven. Five of her  pups are now in the “family business” of advanced search work. Keahi and her  offspring are a credit to their breed and their breeding.
The following dogs received Honorable Mention:
Dino – All American owned by Jackie Phillips of San Leandro, CA
Heather – Bloodhound owned by Allen L. Means of Strasburg, PA
Kessa – German Shepherd Dog owned by Ann Christensen of Shelley, ID
Merit – Bloodhound owned by Terri Heck of New Cumberland, PA
Sam – German Shepherd Dog owned by Laurie Vickery of Wichita, KS
