Havoc the volunteer search and rescue dog retires
A 13-year-old Kelpie is retiring after years serving Ottawa's SAR Global 1
The 13-year-old Kelpie was the first canine to work with SAR Global 1.
Throughout his career, he helped find and rescue two missing people, discovered bodies, assisted the city's police and fire departments, and found missing items worth more than $5,000.
These days, Havoc is deaf and suffers from arthritis. The dog now depends on hand signals for instructions.
