   Our Columbus facility was recently visited by two very important members of the Golden Triangle community, GTR   K-9 Search Team founder Kathy Doty and her highly skilled  K-9, Lakota. Established in 2000, the GTR K-9 Search Team is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization.                         "Coincidentally, just as American Eurocopter's Light Utility Helicopter, the UH-72A Lakota, will be used by the U.S. Army as a search and rescue resource(among other duties), I too, utilize the same resource in my K-9 Lakota,"says Mrs. Doty" and I consider them "Partners in Service".
Following a visit to South Dakota in 2005, the name Lakota was chosen as a mark of Mrs. Doty's respect for the great Sioux nation.
  Lakota, a three-year-old Belgian Malinois, is the first K-9 in this area to be trained and certified in Human Remains Detection (HRD). Along with her kennelmates, one certified in Mantrailing, two training HRD, she has been instrumental in assisting the EMA, 911 and Law enforcement, not only in the Golden Traingle, but throughout the state of Mississippi.
