Leslie had contacted us when the pups were about 3 weeks old. We had constant contacts with Leslie with
information on 'How to choose a dog for SAR'; communicating by phone & mail. She is a great person with the
same ideas on everything concerned - evaluation, care & training. David & I were thrilled to work with Leslie.
A litter of 11 pups, it was not long before we had two B/W males choosen. From the two there was something
different about 'one' that had a higher score for SAR. We now called him 'MINGO'. The other was called 'Charlie'
that went to a local farm couple. As years went by we had heard many great stories on both E.S.'s. Charlie saved
the life of the farmers wife. She was in the pasture/barnyard with Charlie to gather the cows in the barn for milking
when the young bull attacked her/knocking her to the ground when Charlie intervened by barking/biting/chasing away the
bull til the lady rolled away under the fence not injuried - a big thanks to Charlie he saved her life.
We have heard many wonderful great stories from Leslie & Mingo's rescues. Leslie
was very devoted & bonded to her English Shepherd never forgotten.
Leslie has our very deepest sympathy;
Theresa M. & David J. Kaschak
