Our canine heroes
Extraordinary Dogs portrays more than 50 working dogs, along with the police officers, firefighters, veterans, and other trained volunteer handlers who serve side-by-side with them. Their moving stories and beautiful photographs are an unprecedented glimpse at Comfort Dogs and Search and Rescue Dogs, along with bomb-detecting TSA dogs and canine ambassadors from across the United States.
Search and Rescue K-9 teams reveal what it’s really like to travel into the eye of natural disasters, accidents, crime scenes, and the worst terrorist strike in recorded history.
Readers meet several of the Department of Homeland Security’s TSA dogs whose sole job it is to keep the flying public safe from explosives and other dangers.
"This rewarding follow-up to photographer Stavrinides’s Miracle Dogs, with text by Schlimm profiles over 50 dogs responsible for heroic feats. This inspiring work commendably documents how rescue and comfort dogs (and their handlers) help humans deal with trauma."—Publishers Weekly
