DFD5 Team— K9 Lee and Anna

Lee is a 2 year old Treeing Walker Coon Hound who was tracked and rescued by Anne and her K9 Heidi.  His breed is a cross with a Fox Hound and a Bloodhound.  Lee first was rescued from a hunter down south and escaped from the rescue group here in Baltimore.  It took Dogs Finding Dogs 3 weeks to finally get him out of a patch of bamboo he was hiding in.

Lee is INCREDIBLE!  Having the nose of a Bloodhound and the duration of the Foxhound he is unstoppable and EXTREMELY accurate!  Lee is a rags to riches story.  He is currently owned by Anne of Dogs Finding Dogs but is being handled by Anna, who being younger, can keep up with him!

Anna has an extensive dog training background and Lee has earned his AKC CGC. If a long endurance track is needed, as in the rural countryside, Anna and Lee are the first choice!

Hurray Lee!!!  You have a happy home and now a wonderful life full of fun!

DFD7 Team— K9 Maggie and John

Meet Maggie & John. Maggie is a 3 year old German Shepherd that loves tracking and obedience work.

Two of Maggie’s grandparents were search and rescue dogs and many of her kinfolk are police dogs and work in other capacities; so as Hank Jr. might sing, she is simply following a family tradition.

We knew Maggie was destined to look for lost pets when she found her neighbor “Snoopy,” a Beagle who had run away from home. Within 30 minutes Maggie took us to the back yard of the person who had found Snoopy and he was reunited with his family.


John has owned and trained Germans Shepherds most of his life and enjoys working with dogs. Maggie has her AKC CGC and her Schutzhund BH. She continues to train at Arrowwood Shepherds.

Jim being a trainer who specializes in dogs with behavioral problems fully understands what goes on in the minds of our little furry children.

Dick and K9 Jean help round out the expertise that the entire staff of DFD is made of.

DFD10 Team— K9 Keelah and Christine

Meet Keelah and Christine. Keelah is a 4 year old Shepadoodle - a mix between a German Shepherd and a Standard Poodle.  Keelah exhibits the best of both breeds, in that she is very intelligent and also has a drive to work. 

Soon after acquiring Keelah, Christine realized that she would need to find a "job" for her, as Keelah spent much of her day patrolling the yard and herding the other pets in the household.  Keelah's favorite activities include playing soccer, swimming, and of course, tracking.


Animals have always played an important role in Christine's life.  She became interested in tracking when a neighbor lost a feral foster dog in a 300 acre park.   She enjoys helping owners find their lost pets because she knows firsthand how devastating it is.  Christine's household currently consists of 3 cats and 3 dogs, 5 of which were rescues of one type or another.
