Meet K9 Pistol...

Pistol is a Cattle dog/Pomeranian mix, and she certainly lives up to her name!  This little lady is a workhorse! Born in December of 2019, she was adopted from the Ojai animal shelter by her handler, Deresa. 


In May of 2023, Pistol and Deresa certified in both urban and wilderness trailing.  She will be deployed to search for lost people in both urban and wilderness areas.  Trailing dogs need a scent article so they can follow the trail of the lost person.  This type of search is the most common call out with the Ventura County Search and Rescue (SAR) teams
