What is special about your pet? Some animals are particularly suited for special jobs, such as guiding, finding drugs or bombs, and providing therapy. Coldwater, as a certified cur breed of dog, had heightened senses that made her a great warrior and rescue dog. Her beginnings were humble: She was different from the other pups in her litter, and her single drooping ear was thought to be a defect, when in fact it signified that she was a true cur dog. Ray Green; his wife, Petey; and her mother, Granny, decided to take a chance on the unwanted pup, who would prove to be nothing short of amazing.
Time and again, Coldwater was called upon to perform search-and-rescue missions. She was able to find the missing little girl who was lost in the woods of West Virginia, but can she locate the lost coal miners and find a way for them to escape the mines that were blocked by falling rock? Read The Adventures of Coldwater: The Warrior Dog by Ray M. Green, a tribute to one manís spectacular dog and the feats she performed.
