Search dog 'Nell'

10 May 2018

It is with great sadness that we announce the recent passing of Search dog ‘Nell’ (a border collie handled by CVSRT Chairman David Warden).

Nell retired recently on her 13th birthday having given over 11 years of service to Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team and SARDA England. She was always a confident dog, happy to work at great distances from David and thereby searching and clearing large swathes of moorland or mountainside very efficiently.

She was a quick learner and took to search work very enthusiastically. Nell passed her search dog assessment in Snowdonia and joined CVSRT in March 2006, a few months before her second birthday. Her first assignment was to the Lake District a couple of weeks after passing her assessment and a few months later located a flood victim in the River Swale in North Yorkshire. She was instrumental in locating a despondent adult on Ilkley Moor, with David providing emergency care to the casualty.

CVSRT would like to thank 'Nell' for her many years of dedication and commitment to the team and the community. She was an adorable character and will be sorely missed.
