Last year Fielder went to Oso, Washington, for a search and rescue mission after the tragic mudslide.

Before his Washington State deployment, Fielder was deployed on a Department of Defense mission in Kyrgyzstan to find the remains of a missing Airman. He was successful. This wasn’t his first military trip.  Fielder brings troops home.

When Fielder isn’t looking for bodies there is a good chance he is training.

Last Wednesday, Fielder suffered a bad break during a training session. He required immediate surgery to correct a broken leg, disarticulated joint and ligament damage.

A “Go Fund Me” page has been set up to help pay for his surgery. Please click here to visit the page.

Search and rescue dogs go into the worst places under horrible conditions all to make life for us humans better. When there is an accident it is heartbreaking for the team and the owner-handler.

If you can help, please do. You can help by sharing this article. Let’s get Fielder back on four paws as fast as possible. You never know, he could come for you someday.
