Karin Tarqwyn, a K9 investigator, loved animals. She was an eight-year-old kid when she trained her first dog. Since then, she’d always had a dog by her side.
When Karen’s dog, Jack, went missing in 2004, she could not get help in searching for lost dogs. There were no pet detectives at that time, so she decided to train dogs to find a person or a dog using a specific scent.
Karin would need something like a piece of clothing used by a person or a dog so that her tracker dog can identify what scent to seek out. She would rub a piece of gauze on the article and let the dog take a sniff. The dog would take off if he detected the scent. Otherwise, the dog would give a negative alert.
Karin had one dog named Camden who stood out in her pack. Camden was abandoned on a farm when he was about four and a half months old. Karin knew at once that he was meant to be one of her team, so she trained Camden to be a detective dog. When he was working, he was driven and methodical.
Karin got a call from Theresa Tillinger. Her Bernese mountain dog named Schafer went missing. She, her husband Mark, had done everything they could to find Schafer to no avail.
It had been five days since their dog went missing, and even though everyone in the neighborhood had been alerted, no one had seen him. When Mark met Karin and her dog, he hoped that they would be reunited with their dog.
Karin set out to find Schafer. She let Camden lead the search, and they found out that Schafer was roaming. They figured that he would be about 10 miles away from his home. There was a lot of ground to cover, but Karin was determined to find Schafer, and she believed that Camden could do the job.
As expected, Camden found Schafer, and he was reunited with Theresa and Mark. It was a joyful moment for them, and they would be forever grateful to a great pet detective named Camden.
