They are indeed, I wouldn't be without one or a few. More info on the search dogs used: The dogs sent to look for remains this morning belong to the non-profit group, Colorado Forensic Canines, that donate their time and resources to find deceased people. They usually work with law enforcement but have also been known to work with families who have lost loved ones. Their dogs are trained in finding remains that date back to the American Civil War.
