K9 Ruby & Jonathan
K9 Ruby was a gorgeous three year old Dutch Shepherd with infectious enthusiasm who died after a tragic accident while off duty. Ruby was at the very beginning of her search dog career having passed her airscent certification test with flying colors. A non-stop tail wagger, Ruby loved to work and loved to play. She taught her very experienced handler Jonathan many new tricks. Jonathan has been a big contributor to KCSD since 2006 deploying on over 340 missions and previously served as the unit's President. Jonathan's previous search dog was Benny, a German shepherd who will always be a KCSD legend.
